‘Tis the season for giving back to our community!! Last year, we were able to raise a over $9,000 -- and with that, we helped provide Christmas gifts to nearly 80 children in need in Franklin County -- all because of the incredible donations from people like YOU! This year, myself and my friends at WRSC are once again putting our efforts towards BOTH Franklin County Children's Services Holiday Wish Program AND Choices domestic violence shelter's Deck the Halls Program. These programs provide gifts for nearly 4,000 children who are either in foster care or housed through Choice's domestic violence shelter. These last few years have been difficult for all of us for a myriad of reasons, but I am calling on my friends to show up once again to let these children have a brief respite from the pain and trauma they've suffered. All funds collected will go directly towards buying toys and gift cards for the children served by these two fantastic programs who most likely would not receive a single gift for Christmas if not for the giving spirit of those in our community.
The program cut-off date is December 9th, and I am asking my friends to help me raise the $9,500 needed to help me reach my goal by that date. You may donate using the gofundme link or you may also Venmo me @KateSanders724. As always, we will be posting receipts of all items purchased once we've wrapped up the fundraising and all donations are TAX-DEDUCTABLE! If you prefer, you may also donate a new, unwrapped gift -- please DM me for details as both programs are requesting specific gifts.
THIS is your opportunity to bless others this year by giving a few dollars to a very worthy cause! Let the children of Franklin County know that their community cares about them by donating (and sharing this opportunity with others) today and let’s make it a great holiday for children who desperately need it!!!
