CCSO Wraps Up Tenth Annual "Celebrate With A Star" Toy Drive

Thanks to the generosity of Collier County Sheriff’s Office members and the community, the tenth annual “Celebrate With A Star” program was tremendous success.

An office at CCSO Headquarters overflowed with packages containing Legos, Barbie dolls, children’s clothing, stuffed animals, and much more for deserving children assigned to the 20th Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem program in partnership with the Voices for Kids of Southwest Florida (VFK) agency.

There are more than 350 children living in Collier County who have been abandoned or are alleged to have been abused or neglected. Guardian ad Litem volunteers advocate for these children in the courts, the child welfare system and the community.

The presents were distributed by volunteer advocates assigned to each child.
