Interval International, a leading worldwide provider of vacation services, held its annual Holiday Toy Fest on Dec. 14 at the Gibson Bethel Community Center benefitting the City of South Miami.
Children from local families received holiday gifts and visited with Santa Claus and his elves. The festive event included face painting and games to spread cheer around the community.
Interval’s members and clientele stretch across the globe, but the company maintains a strong focus on South Miami, where its world headquarters calls home. Over 30 volunteers from Interval made the Holiday Toy Fest possible. For more than 46 years, the company has supported a variety of community initiatives and organizations, including food drives and local charities.
“We’re pleased to continue the tradition of organizing our Toy Fest and delivering holiday spirit to the families of South Miami,” said Jeanette Marbert, president of Interval International. “Interval associates put tremendous effort to make this a joyful afternoon for the local children and their families. We’re delighted to once again make a difference for these families during this special time of year.”
“Our City is grateful to Interval International for its sustained sponsorship of the Toy Drive,” said South Miami Mayor, Javier Fernández. “Their generosity has made the holidays brighter for countless families over the many years they have sponsored this event. Our community is fortunate to have such wonderful corporate partner.”
