Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

The Treasure Box Project is dedicated to enriching the lives of less fortunate children in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade Counties by providing educational, fun and practical gifts in beautifully wrapped treasure boxes during the holiday Season.The Treasure Box Project is a grass roots endeavor founded in 1999 when we wrapped 65 boxes. In 2000 we wrapped and delivered 125 boxes, and we have grown in leaps and bounds ever since. We received our 501(c)(3) Public Charity Status in September of 2005, and that year about 60 of our hurricane weary friends wrapped, filled and delivered 2,460 boxes. In 2007, with the help of 120 volunteers of all ages, we set up and wrapped in record time, over 3,513 boxes. (We also recycled all our paper and plastic, and donated all our extra food from the event to the local food bank.) We are an efficient machine, thanks to our hard working board members and friends, who help to raise the funds and support us throughout the year. 2010 we delivered over 5,000 boxes to the children of South Florida.

The children will be identified by Head Start and Title 1 Elementary School teachers, and staff in hospitals and infectious disease clinics. We do not donate to the same recipients each year. The Treasure Box items are specially chosen and teachers have been impressed by the quality and variety of items included. Each Treasure Box is beautifully wrapped and is sturdy enough to be used throughout the year. We always have requests for more, which has led us to increase our output each year.   

 

  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!

 

 

THESE CHILDREN ARE COUNTING ON YOUR DONATIONS!
