Community Within Holiday Giving Event A Success!



The Community Within is a local non-profit organization which recently gained national attention by being interviewed by CNN and is working within the area to provide leadership, mentorship and providing role models to young men within our communities. In addition to the focus and goals of The Community Within, President and Founder, Bobby Williams stated the organization is dedicated to providing services year round and this year’s first Holiday Toy Giveaway was proof of that. Williams said, “Ten families from the Sarasota area were adopted by fire stations, local businesses and private families. There were between two and six children in the families.

We have a great giving community and people behind our efforts to give and be involved. I appreciate each and every one of them. We are starting to grow as an organization due to the results of the program in place.” Food and drinks were served at the free event and Santa made an appearance to pass out the gifts to the children. Williams plans on making the Holiday giveaway an annual event. He added, “Thank you all for your support and confidence in me to make this work.”
