(Orange County) Mayor Teresa Jacobs will “flip the switch” to illuminate Heritage Square Park at the Orange County Regional History Center’s annual Holiday at Heritage Square.
This free event, featuring activities and crafts for the entire family, kicks off at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, December 5, outside the History Center, 65 East Central Boulevard, in Orlando’s Heritage Square.
Mayor Jacobs will also launch her 2012 Holiday Heroes Toy Drive, now in its second year. The toy drive encourages the community to bring new, unwrapped toys to participating drop off centers. Toys should be appropriate for children up to 18-years-old. Gift cards will also be accepted. Last year’s toy drive generated more than 1,000 donations.
Donated toys will be delivered to children through Wraparound Orange, the Orange County Neighborhood Centers for Families, and the Community Food and Outreach Center, which all serve children and families in need.
