The WPSL Christmas Kids completed its 67th annual Toy Drive giving presents to 1,009 underpriviledged children from 400 families. The Christmas Kids, the oldest continuous St. Lucie County Toy Drive salutes all of the volunteers who made this yearâ€™s drive so successful despite a down economy.
WPSL Christmas Kids would also like to thank the 25 Fort Pierce and Port St. Lucie businesses who sponsored the entertaining shows from November 11th through December 16th, making donations to the Toy Drive. The Christmas Kids now shift gears to the summer infant swimming program in St. Lucie County in memory of past Christmas Kids President Pauline Clutter. The 2013 toy drive will commence Monday November 11th at Lawnwood Regional Medical, Heart and Trauma Center. For more information on the WPSL Christmas Kids go to www.wpslchristmaskids.com.

WPSL CHRISTMAS KIDS OF ST. LUCIE COUNTY
The Christmas Kids originated in 1946 when the first radio station on the Treasure Coast broadcast an appeal to help a little girl with brain cancer. The generosity of listeners was overwhelming--the toys and money donated helped little Reba Nell & many more children.
The campaign has continued every holiday season since. In 2006, the Christmas Kids provided toys for more than 1800 children referred by St. Lucie County Community Services and other agencies.
Over the years, the Christmas Kids expanded to include summer recreation programs for children, plus medical supplies & school clothing for families with no other place to turn.
Many thanks to all who helped with the Friends of the Christmas Kids Auction!
You enabled the Christmas Kids to give more than $14,000 to: St. Lucie County summer recreation programs, helping an estimated 150 children in day camp & swimming programs. City of Port St. Lucie Parks & Rec. for "camperships" to help pay summer camp fees & to allow free use of Minsky Gym. Ft. Pierce & Port St. Lucie Police Athletic Leagues for police-supervised boxing & recreation.
