Is there anything better than knowing that you helped make someone’s day?
They say that giving is the real gift, and that mysterious “they” couldn’t be more right. Helping others is a fantastic way to spend your Christmas, and it’s even more special when it means helping children.
If you’re looking for a way to give back this holiday season, we’ve got you covered. Franklin County Children Services wants to make sure that over 6,000 kids get the Christmas they’ve been dreaming of, and you can help.
The Holiday Wish program allows children under the care of FCCS to request a special toy or gift. Kids 11 and under can choose toys or other gifts valued at $50 and kids 12 and older receive a $60 gift card for Target or Walmart.
Additionally, you can donate any amount to help purchase gift cards or food certificates for families and you can sponsor one or more children.
If you decided to sponsor a kiddo with a gift, you will receive the child’s wish list. After that, you can do your best Santa impression and shop for the perfect item. Once you’ve got your hands on it, you can wrap it up and deliver the gift to Holiday Wish.
The program also accepts new, unwrapped toys that aren’t specific to the wish lists. If you’d like more info on the project, visit the Holiday Wish website here.
Holiday Wish is located near I-70 in the Children Services’ building at 855 West Mound Street, Columbus, OH 43223.
