A local organization that gives so much to children in Miami was spotlighted for its efforts not just during this unprecedented time but over the course of many years.
Giving is the core of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami. The TODAY show’s annual Toy Drive looks a little different due to the pandemic — but in partnership with NBC’s parent company Comcast and with help from NBC 6, Big Brothers Big Sisters received toys and gifts for some 250 families on Tuesday morning.
“It was fantastic,” exclaimed 10-year-old Gissel Paz. “I am so happy. I’m speechless because I didn’t expect the presents would be exactly the same I wanted. [I am] just so surprised and really happy about it.”
