CEDARS Kicks Off Holiday Gift Drive for Kids
CEDARS’ (www.cedarskids.org) Holiday Gift Drive has returned. Throughout the month, CEDARS is asking members of this caring community to help collect new toys, clothes, and other gifts for the children in the foster care system at CEDARS. These donations send such a strong, positive message to these kids. Oftentimes, their lives are filled with chaos and disappointment, but these gifts show them that someone really cares for them.
Some kids wish for a safe place to sleep. That heartbreaking truth is the reality that CEDARS works every day to change. Nearly 250 children will be staying safe in CEDARS care over the holidays. For many, it is because they have no other safe place to spend the night. Many come with just the clothing on their backs. For some, this is the first time they have spent the holidays away from their homes.
“The holidays are a time of excitement and magic. We want to keep that joy for the kids during this difficult time in their young lives,” said Jim Blue, president of CEDARS.
Anyone interested in helping the children at CEDARS is encouraged to contact Tina Reeves at (402) 904-3261 or email@example.com. For more information about how CEDARS cares for children and their families, call (402) 434-KIDS (5437) or visit www.cedarskids.org.
