(ATLANTA, GA) December 20, 2022 — Celebrity Chef Darryl Taylor hosted an incredible day of giving where children walked away with gifts just in time for the holidays. Over the weekend, Taylor along with his staff at Overflow End-Stage Renal Foundation gave away toys to over a hundred families. Uniquely targeted for families where one or more family member has experienced renal system challenges, Taylor and his team brought smiles to all in attendance. There were toys for all ages, bikes, electronics, raffles, fresh popcorn, games and fun had by all.
When asked about his thoughts on the event, Taylor says, “It is truly a blessing to be a blessing. I remember when I was younger and when my family fell on hard times, the word got out and the community came together and gave us truckloads of toys! It go to the point where we had to give a lot of them to other kids in our neighborhood as well! I’ll never forget that.”
Next year he hopes to continue his philanthropy setting his sights to reach even more people than before. “No one should have to spend Christmas worrying about disappointing their kids because of health challenges…” according to Taylor. “I hope this day makes Christmas Day more joyous for families we’ve touched.”
Two happy children taking home new bikes!

About Overflow End-Stage Renal FoundationOverflow End-stage Renal Foundation is one of the passions of local Atlanta Chef Darryl Taylor. For many years he was an in-center dialysis patient himself. It was during this time he met many other dialysis patients who had a great need for assistance with day-to-day tasks. Chef Taylor took it upon himself to begin to help in any way that he could, very often it was just delivering meals. He later determined that there were so many other needs going unmet. With the help of few friends, and family members he formed the Overflow End- stage Renal Foundation. Now in its 7th year the foundation works to assist the many needs of this specific community.
