Christmas for Kids 2013
November 1, 2013
Christmas is right around the corner. Across the Miami Valley, children are filled with the magic of the holiday. Christmas morning, for many children, is a thrilling day of sparkly gifts stuffed in stockings of joy, trees standing tall with ribboned boxes at their base.
But for other children, Christmas underscores the sad reality that is their own. Maybe their parents are struggling with money, maybe they’ve been taken out of a dangerous or neglectful home and are in new and unsettling circumstances. For whatever reason, so many of our local children do not experience the unfettered happiness of their youth, at Christmas and all through the year.
For Love of Children’s annual holiday project, Christmas for Kids provides new toys and gifts to thousands of children every year. Our 2013 project is now underway- please look for barrels located throughout the Miami Valley with our FLOC logo. Unwrapped gifts and toys put into those barrels will go directly to a child who will celebrate Christmas because of you. In many instances, the gifts we provide will be the only presents these children will receive.
We hope to make this the best holiday yet. For additional information, please contact our offices at 937.223.3562. We appreciate your time and support. We thank you for making the holidays a time of joy and celebration for our children who need just that in their lives- at Christmas and throughout the year. If you are interested in volunteering with us, we have many opportunities for you; join us in trying to make a better life for the children we serve.
Thank you so very much,
FLOC Board of Directors
