Holiday Wish Child Gift Sponsorship

You can grant a child's holiday wish.

Call (614) 275-2525 to be matched with a child or email

Holiday Wish allows youth under the care of Franklin County Children Services to request a special toy or gift. Each year, the central Ohio community provides gifts for thousands of children. You can help make the holidays special.

Here is how to sponsor a child:

  • Each child age 0 through 11 or their caregiver selects toys or other gifts valued at $50 from their wish list. (Wish list items should be dropped off at our West Mound Street location by December 4.)
  • Donors may sponsor one or more children. They will receive each child's wish list, shop for the toys, wrap each gift separately, and deliver them to Holiday Wish.

Holiday Wish is located near I-70 in the Children Services' building at 855 West Mound Street, Columbus, OH 43223. Click here for directions


Before you deliver your gifts, double check: 

Do you have the requested gift?

Does the value of the gift total $50? 

Have you attached the GREEN gift tag to each gift? 

Have you individually wrapped each gift?
