FSS / Brightway Christmas Drive

Thank you for your interest in our annual Christmas Drive to help out our local Foster and Independent Living youth.

Our program focuses mainly on the young men and women who have "aged out" of the Foster Care system (these are children who turned 18 in foster care without being adopted or being able to return home – so are now mostly out on their own to figure out life and learn how to be adults virtually all on their own).
Most of these youth have grown up in foster care and spent the majority of their Christmases without any family and wondering if Santa would know how to find them in their foster or group homes. It’s safe to say that many of them have never experienced a love-filled Christmas with personal gifts or fellowship, and we want to try to help them break that cycle!

We make our main goal to find sponsors for the Independent Living youth (those who are over 18 years old) and their children, if they have any. Once the youth is out of foster care, there is no other community help or Christmas sponsorship programs for them.

Please consider making a donation to support these young men, women and children - we will use the funds to purchase personalized gifts for each youth (based on their submitted wish lists) and/or purchase gift cards for them.

All donors will receive a tax donation form from the Community Based Care agency directly.

Thank you for your generosity!
