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 more than 6,500 children. You can help make the holidays special.

Here is how to sponsor a child:

  • Each child age 3 through 8 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 3. )
  • 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
