The kind folks at Abaco Freight in West Palm Beach have been gathering toys to be delivered to children throughout Abaco, Bahamas the week before Christmas.
A November 30 toy drive held at Wellington Mall in West Palm was quite successful, but they’re still in need of 150 or so more toys.
In particular, they’re seeking unwrapped gifts for:
- Boys aged 6-18
- Girls aged 6-12
- A few babies (under age of 3)
Donations can be dropped off or shipped to:
Abaco Toy Drive c/o Abaco Freight
10130 North Lake Blvd.
West Palm Beach, Florida
The toy shipment leaves for Abaco early the week of December 16, so items must arrive at Abaco Freight on or before December 15.
If you need gift ideas, Abaco Freight has even created an Amazon wish list full of great suggestions. And if you’d rather send money with which toys can be purchased, drop me a note and I’ll put you in touch with Kimber Mazzeo of Abaco Freight.
The children of Abaco have endured so much in the last few months. Please help our friends at Abaco Freight to give them a happy Christmas.
And thank you to Kimber and Nick Mazzeo and their team for everything they’re doing to help!

Is there someone in the WPB area who will shop if I send money?
Yes! I will send you an email with contact information for Kimber Mazzeo. She’s been accepting donations of funds, and buying toys with them. Thanks, Fred!
hi – is there still a shortfall on gifts for Abaco? If so, can you please put me in touch with someone?
Hi, Dave. Thank you for your note. Sorry I’m so late in replying. Several gift drives have been held, and I’m confident that gifts have been or will be supplied for all. If you’d still like to contribute to the Abaco relief effort, however, please click on this link: https://littlehousebytheferry.com/2019/09/01/how-you-can-help-bahamian-victims-of-hurricane-dorian/.
