Deserving Children Receive Presents and Cheer through FCCA Foundation Holiday Gift Project

Recently the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) carried out it's 19th Annual Holiday Gift Project and gave more than 8,000 children in 40 destinations toys for Christmas.  As part of the travel and cruise industry, Excursion is amazed at how giving and charitable the FCCA has always been supporting the destinations that it's members cruise lines visit throughout the year. 

More than 8,000 children had something to celebrate this holiday season because of the 19th annual FCCA Foundation Holiday Gift Project.


The Foundation contributed gifts selected for age groups and genders specified by the record 40 partnering destinations. Then Member Lines’ vessels and crewmembers acted as sleighs and elves as they brought the gifts to the destinations, where representatives had coordinated festivities to celebrate with the children while giving presents and smiles.
