What Does it take to sponsor a child for Christmas!?

 

Basic information for sponsoring a child:

You will be provided with a ‘wish list’ from a child/children involved with our agency or a supporting agency in Warren County. This list will have their basic information, (name, age, sex) items they need (coats, socks, gloves, etc.) a few things they are interested in (TV Shows/Movies, Sports, games) and 5 toy/gift items they wish for. These gifts are typically the only gifts they receive due to being in foster care, residential facilities or with caregivers who can’t financially provide the Christmas they deserve. There are NO RESTRICTIONS on how much you must spend or purchase, it is whatever you are comfortable with! However, we do require the items to be NEW, nothing used, please.

 

The gifts are dropped off in Lebanon the first week of December. The case workers and I then make sure to have the gifts to each child before Christmas morning!

 

If you feel more comfortable making a monetary donation, that is fine too! We also have wonderful sponsors that donate NEW blankets, toys, gift cards and various items. Whatever works best for you, we appreciate!

 

Have more questions or want to become a sponsor? Reach out today!
