Children’s Fund, a nonprofit providing Support, Opportunity, and Hope to vulnerable children throughout San Bernardino County, will be collecting and distributing over 60,000 gifts for children this holiday season as part of their 34th Annual Celebration of Giving campaign.
“With the help of our sponsors, donors, volunteers, and community partners, we are excited to be able to spark a little bit of HOPE in the lives of our most vulnerable children and youth this holiday season,” said Cesar Navarrete, President & CEO of Children’s Fund.
Children’s Fund collects toys and gift cards for children ages 0-18 during the month of November and December to meet their goal of reaching 60,000 gifts.
Kristin Pierce, Board President, said, “This event pulls at my heart every year- to think that we have so many kids in San Bernardino County who may not receive a Christmas gift is too sad to imagine. The Celebration of Giving event that Children’s Fund spearheads is so special because we can give those kids a gift and [removed] show them that someone cares about them.
The Celebration of Giving campaign depends heavily on toy donations and major donors, including First 5 San Bernardino, Spark of Love, San Manuel Band of Indians, Amazon, Arrowhead Credit Union, Forever 21 Distribution, Southern California News Group, and many others.
Toys, gifts, and gift cards are currently being collected. If you would like to donate, please call 909.379.0000 or visit www.childrensfund.org/cog2022.
