The Division of Family and Children Services needs our help to make Christmas special for foster children throughout Georgia. Currently, Santa will be short on his visits to over 6,700 children in 124 counties by Christmas morning. There are currently 11,656 children, ages 0-21, in foster care. The goal is to fill as many wish lists as possible.
How can you help? There are a few ways:
- Contact DFCS to sponsor children: Based on the number of children that you would like to shop for, they will supply a list containing their first name, age, sex, race and county of residence.
- Agency Toy Drive: Collect toys from staff. DFCS will match toys with the children’s wish lists.
- Monetary Donation (by check or website): Check can be mailed to the DFCS office (2 Peachtree Street, Suite 19-472, Atlanta, 30303) made payable to: DHS Secret Santa, or you can go online and donate via PayPal.
You can click on Secret Santa Program for more information! That’s it! Someone will wrap and deliver the toy on your behalf on Christmas morning.
Thank you for helping to make the holiday season bright for kids in foster care!
