During this festive time of year, many people are focused on “extra” things in life. Unfortunately, there are many children and teens in our community who go without the most basic necessities. Things like toothpaste, deodorant, soap and feminine hygiene supplies are products that homeless and low-income families simply cannot afford. The heart-breaking results can be low self-esteem, embarrassment and shame often leading to isolation and feelings of hopelessness for these youth.

To help alleviate this issue, Brevard Schools Foundation (BSF), along with The Viera Company and other community partners, are co-hosting a new event titled, “Light the Lantern,” on Thursday, December 9 from 5-7 pm at the school board building located at 2700 Judge Fran Jamison Way, Viera.

Participants will be treated to a luminary trail adorned with special holiday sparkle as they pull up to the contact-free drop off location. The first 50 donors will receive a free luminary to take home.

Suggested items:
soap
shampoo
body wash
deodorant
toothbrushes
toothpaste
feminine hygiene products

Monetary donations will also be accepted. All donated items will be distributed to homeless and low-income students through the Supply Zone for Teachers, located in Cocoa, serving the highest poverty schools in our county.

Other businesses and organizations supplying assistance to this event are Viera Community Institute, Fairway Management, iHeart Media and American Advertising Federation Space Coast.
