The Dellutri’s Christmas Foundation is a non-profit organization 501 (c) (3). The Foundation’s mission is to bring Joy and happiness to the less fortunate children in the community during the holiday season. The children’s age groups that we assist are from infants to fourteen years of age. These children are from very low income areas, and many of them will only receive toys from the Dellutri’s Christmas Foundation during the holiday season.
Every dollar we receive is to benefit the children, and every person involved in the foundation is a volunteer.
The distributions of toys impact the following areas Wynwood, Liberty City, Over Town, South Miami, Little Havana, Coconut Grove, Homestead, Florida City, Goules Area, Cutler Ridge etc. etc. As we go as many places as possible assisting as many children as we are able with the available resources we have. Every year the list of children in need is longer, and fulfilling each and every request can only be accomplished with the generous contribution, and support of individuals, professionals, and Corporations.
The distribution of toys takes place in the month of December, dates and times are scheduled to accommodate the children and volunteers.
The toys are distributed at many different locations, Schools, Homeless Center, Neighborhoods Resource Net Centers, Police Stations, Farm Workers Centers, Community Centers, Hospitals, Businesses to name a few.
While the Dellutri’s Christmas Foundation purpose is to bring joy and happiness to the less fortunate children in the community during the holiday season. We strongly believe that we do much more than that. We bring communities together by commitment and team work We work with YOUR local police departments. These departments identifY the families that are in need of toys. These families are notified where and when the toy distribution for there area will take place helping us help those in need. . This creates a positive image between the officers, families and our children, and a safer environment, since officers assist with the lines and flow of traffic.
All the toys distributed are gift -wrapped. Students and teachers from different schools come together to wrap toys at our facility and many of them help with the toy distribution. This involvement creates in each student a sense of accomplishment, and satisfaction by -helping others and helps the students to meet their requirement for community service hours.
One of our goals is to pass on to the younger generation the importance of caring and compassion for the less fortunate children~ and to carry on the humanitarian efforts of elevating the quality of life of the less fortunate children in our community.
Your contribution will touch the hearts of many children. On behalf of the thousands of children who will benefit from your contribution. We thank you for your support.
