This season, I Love the ‘Burg encourages everyone to give even just a little bit. We are so proud to partner with R’Club Childcare, Inc. and Kahwa Coffee to make the holidays brighter for kids in need in Pinellas County.

Toy donation boxes have been set at Kahwa locations across the Tampa Bay region. We encourage you to leave new and unused toys, sports equipment like basketballs and team sports gears like Rays or Lightning jerseys, books, and/or school supplies for kids ages K-8 at your favorite local coffee shop. (No need to wrap them in gift wrappers.) The donation boxes will be there through December 11.

R’Club serves over 4,000 infants, preschool, elementary and middle school children daily in 47+ locations in Pinellas County, including Pre-School, Pre-K, VPK, Head Start, Elementary and Middle School and Special Needs.

Additionally, R’Club provides a variety of other services for children, families, child care programs/providers and businesses.
