LCSO gift distribution at The Children's Community Center

It will be a Merry Christmas indeed for 160 students attending early learning programs at Child Care of Southwest Florida. A unique partnership between the nonprofit education provider primarily serving children from lower-income households and the Lee County Sheriff’s Office led to deputies playing the role of Santa in delivering presents just before the holidays. The Sheriff’s Office collected donations of toys from local businesses and community partners across the region. On Dec. 10, law enforcement officers made a special visit to The Children’s Community Center in Lehigh Acres, where they gathered as 20 students unwrapped early Christmas gifts. Additional presents will be provided to other students attending The Children’s Community Center, as well as some of their siblings. For more information about Child Care partnerships and sponsorships, call 239-278-1002 or visit CCSWFL.org.
