'Tis the season for our 12th Annual Toy Drive benefitting Partnerships for Children!
Do you remember the excitement of the holidays, what it felt like to eagerly count down the days during the holiday season, and the thrill and anticipation of having gifts to open? Many of the Central Texas children who are in the care of Child Protective Services during the holiday season have never had these experiences. Their lives are upside down.
Partnerships For Children’s Holiday Wishes program creates happy memories for children in the care of CPS, granting holiday wishes to over 7,000 local children. For many of the children served, these are the only gifts they'll receive this holiday season. Gifts aside, the work PFC does to help and support children, youth and families connected to CPS is important and you can help!
Whether you sponsor a child's holiday wish or donate general gifts, you’ll help these children create happy holiday memories during an otherwise difficult time of their lives. Because the holiday season is such a busy time of the year for PFC and there are so many children to be served, the deadline for gift-giving is Thursday, December 16th.
- GENERAL GIFTS | Bring a NEW, unwrapped toy to COVER 3 or COVER 2 and we'll get these gifts to Partnerships for Children in time for holidays. These donations go into PFC's storeroom so that caseworkers can "shop" for their child's wishes. This is also the inventory from which many of the children that come into the Rainbow Room late in the holiday season will receive their holiday gifts from.

- SPONSOR A CHILD | Grant a child's Holiday Wishes by purchasing items from their wish list. When you become a sponsor, you’ll receive a child’s name, age and clothing sizes along with their three wishes. You’ll purchase the gifts and coordinate a drop-off with Partnerships For Children. Start a holiday tradition of giving with your family and sponsor a child today. To make these wishes a reality, the goal is to get 100% of the children’s wishes granted and PFC is currently only at 20% sponsored. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to sign up to sponsor a child.
