“Our mission was to make sure NO CHILD in Detroit will be without a gift to unwrap Christmas morning.” -Gello
“This has been a life changing experience for me. We truly appreciate everyone who supported the kids in our community.” -Joanna
105.1 The BOUNCE teamed up with Lafontaine KIA, Community Financial Credit Union and Lady Jane’ s Wicked Awesome Wishes to present Gello’s Big Top Toy Drop. The Gello Show camped out at LaFontaine KIA in the middle of the parking lot for 7 days straight with the goal of collecting thousands of toys for kids in need this holiday season. With more than 4,000 toys collected and over $3,000.00 in monetary donations, Gello’s Big Top Toy Drop was a success in its very first year! The donated items will be distributed at Lady Jane’s Wicked Awesome Wishes and Ronald McDonald House in Detroit.
“I am completely overwhelmed by the amazing support of the community who stepped up and showed out for the kids in Detroit,” said Gello. “When a kid goes to school after the holiday, there are kids that will be asked what they received for Christmas. Now, over 4,000 kids won’t have to lie and will have a brighter Christmas. To the people who donated, please understand how monumental and important your contributions are!”
A big THANK YOU goes out to everyone who donated their time, energy, support and toys to this cause… WE COULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS WITHOUT YOU!!!
