Seminole County Sheriff's Office Community Foundation 2019 Christmas Village
GLC was a sponsor for the Seminole County Sheriff's Office Community Foundation 2019 Christmas Village. Each December, the Foundation joins with community care providers and local business partners to host a "Christmas Village" to help provide a brighter holiday for children in foster care, as well as those who have faced abuse or neglect. Volunteers hold toy drives and raise funds to obtain thousands of toys, then set up a festive Christmas Village, complete with games, cookie decorating, crafts, and visits with Santa. While the children enjoy the activities, their parents and caregivers secretly shop for toys to help provide a bright Christmas morning. Families attending the event are by invitation only.
