Skylight Foundation Launches 4th Annual Holiday Toy Drive
Thursday, November 1, 2018

The season of giving is upon us once again, and we need YOUR help! We are excited to announce The Skylight Foundation’s 4th annual Holiday Toy Drive.

What started out as a small effort to assist the Cleveland area during the holidays has grown into a state-wide mission to bring joy to less fortunate families. Over the past few years, with the help of many great organizations, including the Cleveland Police Foundation, Washington Township Fire Department, The City of Cincinnati Police, and the Lucas County Sherriff’s Department, we have been able to donate over 4,500 toys to children across the state of Ohio.

Thanks to partnerships throughout our communities, we have brought together leaders in Toledo, Columbus, Cincinnati, and Cleveland to make an impact this holiday season. These groups are determined to break records of toys collected and cannot do it alone!

To contribute, please bring unwrapped gifts to the Skylight Financial Group office nearest to you. You can also offer a monetary donation at www.skylightfoundation.com/donate. All proceeds collected here will go towards purchasing toys.

For details on how to contribute and what’s going on in your area, please see below.
