Jesus Salas of Miami participates in the Children Youth Life Foundation Toy Drive to serve at risk children.
Location: Stephen P. Clark Building Downtown Miami, FL
Jesus Salas of Miami participated once again with the Children and Youth Life Foundation of Miami. According to Jesus Salas of Miami, this organization is an important nonprofit organization that addresses the needs of those most marginalized and at risk in the Miami community – specifically, young people.
The Children and Youth Life Foundation of Miami has publicized the problem of uninsured children, says Jesus Salas of Miami. It is for this reason that Jesus Salas of Miami has worked hard to support solutions for this problem, which disproportionally affects disadvantaged and disabled children from low-income families. According to Jesus Salas of Miami, the Children and Youth Life Foundation has been working to support these families since 1980 – that’s almost 35 years in the field.
According to Jesus Salas of Miami, the program focuses both on children and their parents, providing resources about issues of abuse and supporting the safety, health, and wellness of children. Some of the resources provided by the organization include medical services, health counseling, food, and school supplies, says Jesus Salas of Miami.
“I am truly thrilled and humbled to be participating in the CYL Foundation Toy Drive this holiday season,” comments Jesus Salas of Miami. “This program works so closely with disabled and disadvantaged youth, and it’s so important to provide services beyond just basic healthcare.” According to Jesus Salas of Miami, one of the best things about a holiday toy drive is its positive effect on children’s emotional health – which itself can be the best medicine.
Past toy drives have been enormous events, with visits from local celebrities – like the mascot of the Florida Marlins baseball team, Billy the Marlin. According to Jesus Salas of Miami, the fun factor is one that is often overlooked by charity and nonprofit organizations that deal with serious issues such as those of disabled and disadvantaged children and youth. For Jesus Salas of Miami, helping out kids doesn’t just mean bringing their medical needs to the forefront – it also means helping these young people enjoy a better life with a brighter future. The CYL Foundation’s toy drive will do just that, says Jesus Salas of Miami.
