Toys flood into St. Louis Metro
Kids Wish Network brought its 15th Holiday of Hope On Tour event to the Dellwood community, distributing over $205,000 worth of new toys, educational items, games, and other necessities to local children in need.
Kids Wish Network united with the City of Dellwood for this special event bringing together city and county officials, firefighters and community volunteers to bring happiness, joy and hope to children, while also fostering better relationships within the community.
On behalf of the City of Dellwood, Mayor Reggie Jones also presented Kids Wish Network with a special proclamation, recognizing May 6, 2017 as Kids Wish Network Holiday of Hope On Tour Day. Mayor Jones said, “I want all citizens to be aware of this most worthwhile organization and join me in thanking all of those involved for their efforts and contributions to our children and their families.”
“The City of Dellwood is happy to host Kids Wish Network’s Holiday of Hope On Tour event here in our city,” said Public Services Director Marvin Crumer. “It’s very meaningful and beneficial for our city and especially our youth, who in a lot of circumstances do not get to just be kids, having a lot of adult responsibilities. Kids Wish Network has given us an opportunity to positively celebrate our children. This is a great event for our city, our kids and our community.”
