Celebrating the Holidays 
CAMDEN CITY, NJ (February 14, 2019)(CNBNewsnet)--On December 16, 2018, the Hispanic Family Center partnered with the City of Camden and Cooper's Ferry to purchase more than 1000 toys for children this holiday season, while Respond Inc. did the same. The City of Camden and Mayor Francisco "Frank" Moran hosted the Teddy's Toys at Winter Wonderland event where the toys were distributed. The event was a fun-filled family experience that brought families together from all around the City of Camden. There were snacks, gifts, and activities provided to all families.
The Hispanic Family Center offered a host of HFC volunteers to assist with the December 16 distribution at the Camden Aquarium.  This toy drive has delivered a message of hope this holiday season. The Hispanic Family Center prides itself on providing children with hope for the future, being a positive influence and enhancing the development of the community's youngsters. 
Along with participating in the City of Camden's Teddy's Toys event, The Hispanic Family Center hosted its very own toy give away and literacy event, in collaboration with Daisy's Place. Families joined the Hispanic Family Center at the Evolution Family Success Center for a day of parent and child activities, a holiday meal and reading. 
Our Born to Read program promotes literacy, instills a love of reading, and empowers children to be life-long learners. Each child who attended the event was given two bi-lingual books to take home. During the event families and staff members read in English and Spanish, to children from our community. 
Thank you to our volunteers!
