Give Kids The World Reopens to Families Jan 17, 2021 .. @GKTWVillage

Give Kids The World

After more than half a year of not hosting families with critically ill children, Give Kids The World (GKTW) in Kissimmee has announced they will reopen to these families starting January 17, 2021.

With safety as their number one priority, they will be opening very slowly, starting with a limited number of families, seasonal staff and volunteers, and gradually growing our capacity over time.

A big part of the decision to reopen has been the money raised by this season’s Night of a Million Lights holiday light spectacular. This new event allowed visitors in to see the Village lit up for the holidays, along with raising awareness of what GKTW offers to the families they host.

Night of a Million Lights runs through January 3, so there’s still time to enjoy the event.

GKTW continues to need donations to operate, and you can make donations, as well as get more information about the charity, at
