August/September 2021 Community Events Calendar
Our Local 10 Community Calendar is back! It’s your one-stop shop for information about free or low-cost events happening in your community. From music festivals to museum displays and everything in between, check out why South Florida is the place to be every day of the week.
Local 10 recognized for Big Bus Toy Express
Every year, Local 10 partners with Big Bus Miami to collect new, unwrapped toys for Toys For Tots using a double-decker bus that crisscrosses South Florida. Onboard are Local 10 News talent and Marine Corps Reserve officers in full dress uniform. The Big Bus Toy Express makes several stops throughout the day providing live reports and documenting the donation experience.
Local 10 Big Book Drive to distribute free new books
Once the schools are selected, our Local 10 crew visits those schools and distributes the new books to every student. This year, we will be following that same model while adhering to COVID-19 safety protocols at the respective elementary and middle schools.
Tribute to Teachers: Nominations received, winners revealed starting May 17
Teachers come up with creative ways to keep students engaged, give praise without asking for the same in return and many times dip into their own pockets to buy classroom supplies. Now, it’s time to say thank you in a special way.
Fundraise for your furry friends at virtual Walk for the Animals
The 31st annual VCA Walk for the Animals is not paw-sing for anything, not even the pandemic. It has been retailored to be a virtual walk this year with the same goal of helping the Humane Society of Broward County continue its mission of providing services to animals and offering educational programs to people of all ages.
