Making The Season Brighter,
One Small Gift At A Time.

FLORIDA TODAY established the Reaching Out Holiday Fund to make the season a little brighter for underserved children in our community. Gift giving is often sacrificed due to financial strain. Our program is a simple gesture to bring a smile and celebrate the spirit of the season.

With money donated to the fund by individuals, groups and corporations, FLORIDA TODAY purchases and distributes new toys and books to thousands of Brevard County children, age newborn to 15 years old. Those toys and books will be distributed countywide to the parents or guardians who might not be able to provide a gift to their children this holiday.
