CSS looking to give kids a joyous Christmas | Community Spirit
CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - Christian Social Services is asking for help in getting foster children a joyous Christmas this year.
According to Regional Director Michelle Bradley, Christian Social Services in Carbondale covers 13 counties in southern Illinois.
Bradley says the Christmas Season fast approaching, they are asking for assistance in helping ensure foster children in will experience the joyous surprise of receiving meaningful gifts for Christmas, something new for so many of the children we serve. They have come from troubled homes, where disappointment is far more common in their lives.
Bradley says each year children in our foster care program learn the true meaning of Christmas through the generosity of individuals in the southern 13 counties.
You can participate by-
- Sponsoring a child/children for Christmas (at least $100 per child)
- Making a donation to “ Secret Santa” for gifts or for Santa’s Party with the children
- Making a donation for programs for children and their families throughout the year
They would like to have the children's gifts by Dec 15, but will accept monetary donations through Christmas.
