This holiday season is going to be bright and joyful – even more so when we share our compassion with others. Newschannel 8’s Kindness Day is coming up on December 13th and H.I. Development’s Connee McGilvray is spearheading the collection of teddy bears and children’s toys at the office for the event, just as she has done for the past decade. The four charities benefiting from Kindness Day this year include Feeding Tampa Bay, OneBlood, Toys for Tots and the Tampa Rough Riders Teddy Bear Roundup.
It’s easy to make a donation in person – you can start a collection at your office or home, like H.I. Development has done, and donate it at the event with their easy drop off system. According to eWFLA, “Volunteers will accept donations Friday starting at 6 a.m. and continue until 7 p.m. Donations can be dropped off at News Channel 8 via a fast and easy drive-through system. The drop-off location will be at the station’s visitor parking lot. OneBlood’s Big Red Bus will also be on site to accept blood donations for those that have time to stop, park and donate.
