Please join families, businesses, churches, schools and other civic groups and support the Lucas County Children Services Holiday Gift Drive. It’s the perfect way to share the holiday spirit with a child here in Lucas County.

The gifts donated by people like you may be the only presents many abused or neglected children they receive. Some live in homes teetering on the brink of crisis. Others cannot live safely at home and are in substitute care. Many are separated from their siblings at a time when they should be filled with excitement about the upcoming holiday season.

Whether you are able to give one gift or 100, your support is appreciated. It will bring a smile to the face of a child who may have little to be happy about this holiday season.

There are dozens of convenient locations around the Toledo area where you can drop off a toy or gift card. Click here for locations! Your support by December 16 is appreciated.

Or, simply text BESTGIFT to 41911 to make a $5 contribution to the Friends of Lucas County Children Services, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Data and service charges may apply.
