In the spirit of the holidays, join the Village of Wellington  along with our community partners: Wellington InterFaith Council, The Christopher Aguirre Foundation, The Mall at Wellington Green, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Don Chepo’s Taco Shop, Oli’s Fashion Cuisine, Wellington Regional Hospital, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office for the 10th Annual Hometown Holiday Toy Drive. 

“The holidays are about giving and helping those in need,” said Mayor Anne Gerwig. “Our residents have always been generous in assisting those less fortunate and ensuring every child has a magical holiday.  Your participation again this year is greatly appreciated as we celebrate this holiday season.”
