FREEPORT, Bahamas - On Monday, January 9th, the Ministry of Tourism month-long toy drive culminated with several team members presenting gifts to the children of the Grand Bahama Children’s Home.

The toy drive, spearheaded by Area Manager, Sales & Marketing, Jennifer Gardiner of the Bahamas Tourism Office in Florida, allowed the children of the Grand Bahama Children's Home to experience the gift of kindness during the holiday season.

Monday's presentation also included the delivery of three brand new generators, which were previously donated by the Miami Dolphins after the passing of Hurricane Matthew.

Nuvolari Chotoosingh, Manager for Sports Tourism, said that “We would like to thank our partners NEMA, the Miami Dolphins, Bahamas Customs Department, the Ministry of Finance, the Bahamas Police Force and the Defense Force for their assistance in getting all of this done."

With a total of twenty-eight children in residence, ranging from six weeks old to thirteen years old, the executive team from the Grand Bahama Children's Home expressed how grateful they were for the wonderful gifts brought by the Ministry of Tourism and the Miami Dolphins.
