Update: read the "Event Update: 2012 Holiday Wish List Drive" blog post for the December 5, 2012 status on this special event. In short, we still need your help and time is running out!

The children supported by our program are often abandoned, abused or neglected.

Many of them are in foster care—removed from family and siblings—with overwhelming needs.

As autumn begins, it is important to remember that these children eagerly anticipate the upcoming holiday season like any other child.

Every year, our non-profit volunteer support group Child Advocates II works with local businesses, organizations and individuals throughout the Big Bend region to ensure that each and every one of the children represented by our program in need of gifts this season receives them.

We need your help to meet this goal. Review the instructions for volunteers and sponsors to learn more and then take part by sponsoring a child or family.


 
No matter the size of the contribution, your generosity will help put a smile on the face of a child in our community this holiday season. If you have any questions, contact one of the people below.

We thank you for your support!
