Be a #WishGranter!
Each December, more than 5,500 children under the care of Franklin County Children Services rely on community donations for their holiday toys and gifts. These are children who may have experienced abuse, neglect or other difficult home conditions and rely on the generosity of our community to put the joy back into their holidays. Thanks to central Ohio donors, for more than 50 years, these children happily play with their Hot Wheels® cars, Bratz Dolls, remote controlled cars, and arts and crafts kits on holiday mornings and beyond.
Help us fill our empty shelves! Make these children's holiday wishes come true and fulfill the wish list of a child or two by contacting Holiday Wish at (614) 275-2525 or by email at email@example.com. You can also drop off new, unwrapped toys at 855 West Mound Street, Columbus, OH 43223. Toy donations are being accepted now through December 23.
Our Holiday Wish office is open for donations on the following dates and times:
- Monday through Friday: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Wednesday, December 7: 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
- Saturdays December 3 & 10: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- Holiday Wish closes at 5 p.m. on Dec. 23 (we are NOT open on December 24 or 25).
While you’re here, stop by our #WishGranter sign and take a selfie to post to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram….Share the good news with your friends!
You can also sponsor a gift card for an older youth by making a monetary donation online or sending a check payable to the Franklin County Children’s fund to our Mound Street location. FCCS relies on donations of funds and toys for Holiday Wish, as the agency's tax dollars cannot be used to support this program. Donations may be considered tax deductible.
