Annual Police and Fire Department Joy Drive

Each year the Palm Beach Gardens Police Foundation is proud to support and sponsor an event that reaches out to hundreds of children and families in Palm Beach Gardens. In difficult economic times, it’s important that we take care of those that are less fortunate than we during the holiday season.

For over fifteen years the Joy Drive has provided toys, and in some cases basic needs, for families and underprivileged children during the holiday season. In 2018 nearly 1,500 children and families received gifts as a result of the Police Foundation sponsored Joy Drive.

The Joy Drive has several locations (see table below) throughout the City where new toys, clothing and gift cards can be dropped off. Those wishing to make a financial contribution can make a check out to the Palm Beach Gardens Police Foundation and mark “Joy Drive” in the notes section of the check.
