Thank You for Granting Holiday Wishes

This year’s response to our annual Holiday Wish program was off the charts! From our staff and volunteers to your family, thank you central Ohio for coming through with Holiday Wish donations and gifts for more than 6,600 children on our caseload in 2019.

Although the holiday season can be a difficult and challenging time for many of the families served by FCCS, your tremendous generosity to Holiday Wish this year put the sparkle back into the lives of children – thousands of them and their caregivers!

Caseworkers were able to deliver about $50 worth of gifts for each child – or perhaps a $60 gift card to a teen paid for with your donations – with love, while carrying a message that the community cares.

Thank you to the businesses, community organizations, individuals and volunteers who have made this event successful for more than 50 years. Holiday Wishes were granted, all thanks to you.
