In Central Florida this holiday season our Evergreen Sleigh set flight with Santa and his Elf aboard to spread holiday cheer throughout some of our Central Florida Lifestyle Communities. Along this flight path Santa and his Evergreen elves collected unwrapped toys from our giving residents to benefit the local charity “XL 106.7 Baby DJ Fund”. Over the period of 7 days our helpers visited multiple communities in the Orlando/Kissimmee area walking the community giving out candy and accepting generous donations for local families in need of a little extra help at this time of year.
Eliany said “what a great opportunity to make families and kids happy. Being part of the Baby DJ project this year was a fulfilling experience. I was amazed on how our company brought communities and employees together to make this happen. Everybody was working as a great team for this wonderful cause made me feel proud to be apart of this Evergreen’s family. I am very grateful to be part of a company that takes every opportunity to give back to others and turn just a good cause in something bigger”.
“The Baby DJ program began over 25 years ago when it’s founder “Johnny Magic” was inspired to provide assistance to families of economic disadvantage in the Central Florida area. As the host of Central Florida’s top rated morning radio show, Johnny has had the opportunity to spend a great deal of time working throughout the community and witnessed firsthand the struggle that many families experienced in providing their children with necessities, especially during the holiday season.
From that moment of inspiration, Johnny began to dedicate his time and resources to developing a program that would make it possible for impoverished families to provide a wonderful holiday experience for their children. In the years since, Baby DJ has worked in collaboration with local churches and nonprofits organizations to fulfill this mission. Baby DJ volunteers have spent countless hours collecting and distributing resources to assist families in need, and the organization has since expanded to include several other charitable efforts that take place throughout the year”.
We are beyond grateful to each and everyone who donated, and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
