Friday, December 16th from 9pm-2am myself and the Fleet Dj’s DMV will be holding a fundraiser/toy drive at The Depot on Charles Street in Baltimore City. We will be collecting unwrapped new and VERY slightly used toys for the Baltimore Social Services department and needy children in the Baltimore area.
This is the time of year when we really need to come together and help those that are in need and give whatever we can. Families and children who are homeless nationally and in Baltimore, represent about one third of the homeless population, and have the fastest growing segment of the homeless population in recent years!
Imagine for a moment if you had no place to call your own…sleeping on the streets on in your car.. couch surfing from friends to friends place…no place to cook a meal…and more importantly no place for your child to sleep in a warm bed and nothing to be able to provide for them.
Homeless and needy children often suffer many long term damages more than their peers such as poor social skills, drop out of school, experience emotional problems, and the list goes on.
Our group of DJ’s REALLY take this seriously and feel it’s our duty to give back to the community however and whenever we can do it! A lot of us don’t have that much on our own, but you can guarantee it’s more than these kids have on a daily basis. Our goal this year is to make sure we collect and donate as many toys as possible to needy kids throughout Baltimore and make their Christmas one to remember! To put a smile on a child’s face this holiday would tremendously benefit them and make us as a group VERY happy!
We are reaching out to all of our family, friends, associates, media, fans and peers to PLEASE work with us for this benefit! Please share this and post wherever you can for us! This is a free event and all we ask is that you come out to help and support us to make this as successful as possible! If you haven’t been able to join us for other events this year, this is the one that we would REALLY like to see everyone take the time to help us make so many kids happy! Even if you cannot attend the entire time of the event please stop by for a little bit with a toy for us to send along with our donations! We can really make a difference and you can too!! It would only take a few dollars to run to the dollar store or local store and grab a few things to change some kids lives who may have never had toys on Christmas before!
If you are unable to make the event you can still donate money! You can contact Benny at firstname.lastname@example.org the money can be sent to a paypal account where the DMV Fleet Dj’s will purchase toys for you!! We will be collecting all of your information to make sure you see what was purchased as well as a special thank you via social media for your generosity!
PLEASE, PLEASE DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO JOIN US FRIDAY, DECEMBER 16TH TO DONATE, AND WE WILL OF COURSE HAVE GREAT DJ’S PLAYING MUSIC ALL NIGHT LONG AS WE PREPARE FOR THE CHRISTMAS THE FOLLOWING WEEKEND! THANK YOU, GOD BLESS YOU, AND THANK YOU SO MUCH AGAIN!!
**NOTE** If you would like to donate very slightly used toys please be mindful of what you are donating and take into consideration these will be given to children the same way we would want to provide our kids with toys. Please make sure they are in the best condition possible of we will not be able to donate!
