SFLHCC 2023 Toy Distribution Benefitting the Children at Centro Mater

On December 19, 2023, the South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce organized a genuinely heartwarming event at Centro Mater West. It was remarkable as over 1000 toys were distributed to children, creating an atmosphere of joy and excitement.

Every child's face lit up with sheer delight as they received their gifts from none other than Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, and a team of merry Elves. The joy and gratitude on their faces were genuinely heartwarming, making the event a truly unforgettable experience.

However, the impact of this event extended far beyond the immediate happiness it brought to the children. It served as a reminder of the generosity and compassion that prevail in our community. It brought to light the power of collective effort and how, when we come together, we can make a significant difference in the lives of those who need it the most.

The South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce would like to express their deepest gratitude to all the individuals and organizations who made this event possible through their generous donations of toys. Because of their kindness and selflessness, we were able to bring smiles and joy to so many children.

SFLHCC Celebrated the Holidays with a Luncheon and Toy Drive at Jaguar Restaurant

The South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce proudly hosts its annual toy drive, a heartwarming initiative to bring joy to the children at Centro Mater. This year, we celebrated at the Jaguar Restaurant with the presenting sponsor Amazon. Attendees each brought unwrapped gifts for donation. This cherished event has become a tradition, where generosity and compassion shine brightly during the festive season.
