Student Collects Toys for Hibiscus Children's Center
10-Year Old Student Collects Toys for Hibiscus Children’s Center
Martin County, FL – The Tilton Family Children’s Shelter in Jensen Beach was excited to receive an abundance of gifts for the children. But this was no ordinary toy drive! John Morgan, a 10-year old student, wanted to help kids. He heard about Hibiscus and asked his mom if he could help the Hibiscus Shelter kids. John wrote a letter to his family and friends, and the response was overwhelming! Santa’s Elf, AKA John, went shopping for each gift and then carefully packed each one for the Hibiscus children. In addition, John and his family will be bringing the children and staff a catered lunch with drinks and plenty of sweet treats on Christmas Eve.
Patrice, John’s mom, describes this incredible young man as a social kid who loves sports and always roots for the underdog. John is an altar server at church and always seeks ways to lend a helping hand. He volunteers his time at Farm Dog Rescue either by helping to set up at events, playing with the puppies, or bagging up food for monthly donations. He put together 180 bags of dog food for Feed Martin County to support the families in need with dogs!
Hibiscus Children’s Center is grateful to John for being an exemplary role model for other youth and for making a difference in the lives of children in need. The Hibiscus Shelter provides safe haven for up to 36 children and critical services including medical, educational, literacy and mental health counseling. John is a true hero and friend to children and we are so proud of his accomplishments and his caring heart! If you would like more information about Hibiscus, please visit HibiscusChildrensCenter.org.
