We’re growing our annual holiday gift drive for kids in foster care this year in hopes of giving at least one gift to all the almost 1,900 kids in care. It's simple: you visit our Amazon Wishlist, pick a gift for a child in care and it's shipped to us. We make sure all the gifts go to a foster child for the holidays.
We're expanding this year with the help of some partners where you can drop off gifts in our holiday gift bins:
• 11/26 Bengals versus the Steelers. Donations will be taken at stadium gates and at Bengal Jim’s tailgate.
• 11/26-12/2 at Hoxworth Blood Center donor centers. Bring a toy when you go to donate blood.
• 12/2: Kenwood Towne Center, 11 am-2 pm. Drop off a gift for a foster child when you come for Santa's Grand Arrival.
• 12/2: Stuff the Bus. Thanks to Metro, we’ll be stuffing a bus with toys. Starts at 9:30 a.m. Crossroads, Oakley parking lot.
We are here to help Hamilton County families and children to a better place in life. We work hard today so they can have better tomorrows.
We can help with food, cash and medical assistance; publicly funded child care; child and adult protection; child support case management; and employment assistance.
If you have concerns about how your case is being handled or you are confused about our policies, we are here to help you.
