DFCS and Clark’s Kids need your help this Christmas

Let’s demonstrate how we can rally to help a sister agency serve their small customers!

The Division of Family and Children Services, in partnership with Clark Howard, needs our help to make Christmas special for foster children throughout Georgia. Currently, Santa will be short on his visits to 3,000 children by Christmas morning.

How can you help? Visit one of these three metro-Atlanta Walmarts this weekend, choose a child’s name to sponsor, and purchase a toy:

  • December 12: 5200 Windward Parkway, Alpharetta | 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
  • December 13: 2635 Pleasant Hill Road, Duluth | 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
  • December 14: 210 Cobb Parkway South, Marietta | 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

You can click on this link for more information! That’s it! Someone will wrap and deliver the toy on your behalf on Christmas morning.

Or, you can make a donation online at by clicking on the “Please Donate Today” button. If you don’t have a PayPal account, simply select the Credit Card option near the bottom of the page.
