Members of the Pass the Blessings Foundation got together at Mitchell Moore Park in Pompano Beach to distribute toys to about 1,500 lower income children.

“We do this because want to help out in the community,” said Joey Laracco, a volunteer with Pass the Blessings. The organization is based in Coral Springs.

His brother Dominick Larocco agreed. “We want to give back to the community,” he said. The event featured a bounce house, popcorn, music and the chance to enjoy a fun social event. Members of Pass the Blessings work with local community organizations to collect toys so every children could receive a least one toy.
