Christmas Giving for Children

Christmas Giving for Children

 

This magical time of year is the perfect time to show our children the gift of giving. At Associated Charities/Ashland County Food Bank we have several ways you can involve your child in the “Giving Spirit”.

 

Adopt a Family: With this program you can request a child to “adopt”. Maybe you select one your child’s age. You would get a list of toys this child would like and then your child can shop! How exciting and rewarding for your child to help brighten another’s Christmas.

 

Food for the Christmas Meal: Go over with your child what a typical Christmas meal has and then purchase items for that meal. Anyone could help with this one. You don’t have to purchase a whole meal, maybe just a can of green beans or bag of potatoes. No gift is too small and all donations count! What a beautiful way to involve your child and help another family at the same time.

 

Toy Donation: Maybe when you are out shopping your child could purchase a gift or toy for another child their age. We sometimes need help knowing what the different age groups want each year, especially the teens, and this would be a big help for us to stock our “Santa” room.

 

No donation is too small. The important thing is the child gets involved in “giving”.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and we could use your help. A donation of $40 would provide a family of 4 with the traditional Thanksgiving meal. Any amount would help purchase needed Thanksgiving food. Last year we helped over 300 families.
