Thanks to its generous patrons and concerned members of the community, Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe has provided an overflowing bin of toys for families in need served at Children First in Sarasota. Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe partnered with the Bradenton Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority on the toy drive to help homeless and underprivileged children have a happier holiday season. Toys collected in Bradenton by the sorority alumnae were delivered to the Visible Men Academy. The toy drive ran from Nov. 15 through Dec. 16.
