…. As we have done in the past, the Central City Alliance (formerly known as the 13th Street Alliance), is giving great gifts to elementary school kids in the area that are getting A’s, despite living in real poverty – dirt poor !
…These kids deserve recognition! … It’s hard enough to do great in school, but when you live in abject poverty ….well. you get it!
……….. So, please take an unwrapped gift for an elementary-aged boy or girl to the Christmas Store on 13th Street before December 20th ….. Then join the community at Middle River Terrace Park on December 20th – 2 pm until 5 pm, where we will give out the toys, sing Christmas carols with a live band, Eat…eat…eat…. and be merry, ….. all while doing a great thing !!!
……..For more info, call me at 954-822-4727

Have you taken a toy to the Christmas Store yet ?
No, not yet, but on behalf of my Firm, there will be multiple toys for the A-tots, and we all thank you for your leadership. jcb
As always, a great community effort Tim! Just wanted to mention to everyone that also that weekend, the historic Annie Beck House right there in the park is open for everyone to see the holiday decorations. The Broward Trust for Historic Preservation, The Fort Lauderdale Junior Woman’s Club and the Central City Alliance will be hosting a reception on Saturday, December 19 from 5-7 pm for members and those who would like to join the Trust, then there is the toy give-away on Sunday, and the house is again open on Monday from 3-8 pm. Hope everyone can join us! Wishing everyone a wondrous holiday season and a happy and healthy New Year!
