(November 28, 2016 – Naples, FL) Sue Huff of E. Sue Huff & Associates, Inc. is helping to coordinate a toy drive with First Assembly Ministries of Immokalee. Individuals may donate new unwrapped toys now through noon on December 14 at multiple locations throughout Naples.
The goal of the toy drive is to collect over 200 new and unwrapped toys for girls and boys from the ages of 1 to 12. Toys will be distributed to children in the downtown Immokalee community on Sunday afternoon, December 18 immediately following the morning service at First Assembly in Immokalee.
“Many of these children will go without toys this holiday season because their families just can’t afford to purchase them,” says Arnie Coones, pastor at First Assembly Ministries. “We want to reach out to the community around us and try to show love and compassion to those who are among the poorest of the poor.”
After the Sunday afternoon toy distribution, Coones says if there are toys left over they will be delivered to the homes of children in the community immediately surrounding the church facility on Tuesday.
During the year, First Assembly gives out backpacks, school supplies, food and clothes. They want to be a source for helping to meet the needs of the kids in the community says Coones.

- KGT Remodeling located at 1045 Collier Center Way #10 in Naples
- Ooh La La Jewels Du Jour located at 900 Neapolitan Way in Naples (each person donating a toy will receive a free gift from Ooh La La Jewels Du Jour)
