2020 has been anything but normal- including the upcoming holiday season. The Children’s Foundation is asking you to help children and youth in need this holiday season.
With the COVID-19 restrictions still in place, the need for help this year is greater than ever! Some families have been unable to work and are facing financial hardships; some are struggling finding a balance with multiple children and having different needs; some just need help trying to put food on the table. So many unique situations all needing the same thing – help and support to create a happy, healthy and positive holiday.
There are many ways you can help support these families:
-Make a cash donation *click here*
-Donate a gift card for families to purchase food, toys and everyday needs
-Purchase new toys and help families in need put a special gift under the tree
-Donate care package items for older youth. Youth need hair products, deodorant, razors and shaving gel, feminine hygiene products, etc.
You can drop these items off at The Children’s Foundation office (East Side entrance of Children’s Aid) at 363 Dundas Street West in Belleville from Monday to Friday between the hours of 9-3pm. We will be accepting toy and care package donations until Tuesday, December 22nd.
On behalf of the children and youth of The Children’s Foundation thank you for Helping One Child at a Time because Kids Can’t Wait.
