Help Children Services make this holiday the caring and giving season it was meant to be.
For more than 50 years, Franklin County Children Services has granted children's wishes through Holiday Wish. These are children who may have experienced abuse, neglect or other difficult home conditions and rely on the generosity of our community to put the joy back into their holidays. Last year, our community provided gifts for more than 5,000 children. These children are under the care of Children Services and may live in their own homes, with relatives, in foster homes or residential care.
There are several ways you can help:
- Sponsor one or more young children at $40 each
- Sponsor one or more older youth at $50 each
- Make a donation of any amount to sponsor a youth
- Donate new toys of any kind
