The Story

During the winter holidays, we see a lot of great people giving to wonderful charities. People donate items like winter coats, boots, toys, and more to kids in need. Then the spring comes, and the momentum slows…

As we all know, poverty, hard times, and needs don’t go away because the sun is out. So we thought, “Why can’t Santa make a stop early this year?!”

SummerTime to Give began as a phone call between Facility IT Group President Shawn Bergfalk and Margaritaville President Dan Leonard, two St. Patrick High School alumni from Chicago. Weeks later a conversation turned into an idea, the idea became reality, and SummerTime to Give was born.

We collect new summer toys and clothing items for kids in need such as: Beach balls, sunglasses, swim gear, squirt guns, sunscreen, etc. You will find our donation boxes located in various businesses and community locations across the nation.

Besides gifts, we also are collecting monies to donate to local charities to help these kids in need. Your dollars will go toward funding these donation efforts, providing centers that house children with extra financial support, allowing Facility IT Group and Margaritaville to continue collecting toys and clothes, and giving SummerTime to Give the means to continue helping throughout the nation for years to come.

SummerTime to Give is a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

We are so excited to announce that we have only collected/counted about 30% of our donation boxes...and we already have over 2,100 gifts!! The generosity and giving spirits that we have seen have been truly amazing. We still have so many more to count - but to know that you have helped us change the lives (even sometimes in the smallest ways) of 2,000 kids in need so far...we are speechless. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Keep on giving - and Fins Up!
