Season of Hope

Making a Difference for Local Families This Holiday Season
WPTV Season of Hope Thank You For Donating

Many of your neighbors in the Palm Beaches and the Treasure Coast are struggling with the high cost of living and trying to make ends meet. During the holiday season, that struggle is even more challenging. WPTV wants to help those in need and give everyone a "Season of Hope."

"Season of Hope" is a community-wide food and toy drive benefiting families throughout South Florida. This toy and food drive begins Monday, Nov. 6, and goes through Friday, Dec. 15. All toys and food collected stay here in the Palm Beaches and the Treasure Coast.

WPTV is teaming up with the United Way of Palm Beach County and our generous sponsors — Seacoast Bank, Good Greek Moving & Storage, Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath, and the Palm Beach Kennel Club — to help collect toys and nonperishable food.

Here's how you can help:

  • Donate food and toys: Consider making donations of non-perishable food items and new, unwrapped toys. 
  • Make a financial contribution by scanning the QR code or you can text "HOPEUW" to 85511.
  • Spread the word: Even if you're unable to donate or sponsor, you can still make a difference by spreading the word about "Season of Hope." Share information about the initiative with your friends, family and colleagues, encouraging them to participate or contribute.
  • Attend a WPTV-sponsored holiday event and keep an eye out for collection bins.

How to donate

Donations can be dropped off at any Seacoast Bank branch, the Palm Beach Kennel Club, Good Greek Moving & Storage locations in West Palm Beach and Jupiter, or at Tradition in Port St. Lucie.

Look for the collection bins later this week and click here to find a Seacoast Bank nearest you. Other donation drop-off locations can be found below.

Monetary donations can also be made to the United Way of Palm Beach County.

Donations can also be made via text message.
