A children should experience the joy and excitement of Christmas. However, for CPS children who have been separated from family, friends and familiar faces, the holidays can be an especially difficult and lonely time. The good news is we can help! This Christmas we can make a difference by blessing a child in CPS with special gifts, showing them that someone cares about them and their happiness this holiday season.
KSBJ and BEAR (Be A Resource) have partnered together this year to make sure that over 12,000 kids in CPS care have a present under the tree! You can help these children truly have a Merry Christmas. Click the button below to start!
