The Treasure Box Project is a Federal 501(c)(3) Not for Profit Corporation that was founded in January 2000. It is dedicated to enriching the lives of less fortunate children in South Florida by providing educational, fun, and practical gifts in beautifully wrapped treasure boxes during the holiday season.
In their first year, they delivered 125 boxes. Each year following, the wonderful wrappers and sponsors have helped to increase their production. In December 2004, while South Florida’s families were hurricane-weary, the Treasure Box Project volunteers distributed approximately 1300 boxes to needy children between the ages of four and seven. In 2007, with the help of 120 volunteers, they set up and wrapped over 3,500 boxes. This year, they have extended their goal to 5,250 boxes!
The boxes are filled with: toiletries, a toothbrush/toothpaste, a storybook, education and school supplies, a notepad & pencils, fun toys, a coloring book & crayons, a small musical instrument, and a small flashlight. These are all basic items we would like to help provide these children this holiday season. For most of these children, this will be the only gift they receive!
The Treasure Box Project is currently working in conjunction with All About Entertainment, Inc. to hold a big Charity Fund Raising event in Fort Lauderdale. We are expecting an attendance of 100-150 guests. We are currently seeking donations for gift baskets to be raffled off in order to raise money for this wonderful organization. This is where your help would be greatly appreciated. We would love for you to donate a gift certificate for a specific service or for an overall amount to be raffled off during our Fundraiser. In return, we will promote your company as one of our sponsors to boost your business and get as many people as possible through your doors!
Your interest and participation is greatly appreciated! Also, if you, your colleagues, family and friends would like to attend the event, it would be an honor to have your support! I thank you very much for your kind attention.
