Silver Dollar City Foundation, Hometown Radio making Christmas brighter for kids in need

30 Nov

This just in:  “A new program, Care for Kids Christmas, hopes to make Christmas brighter for area kids in need. Responding to reports that requests for assistance are up 40 percent this year, the Silver Dollar City Foundation and Branson’s Hometown Radio in conjunction with Love In the Name of Christ (Love INC), have launched Care for Kids Christmas to help families who are in need now more than ever. Care for Kids Christmas hopes to provide gifts for nearly 3,000 area kids this year. The goal is to collect and distribute enough new toys and gifts this holiday season that every area child in need can receive a few gifts.

Anyone wanting to help can donate a new toy or gift item for a child, from infants to age 18. Unwrapped gifts can be dropped off at one of three area collection points before Dec. 14. Gifts will be distributed by Love INC Dec. 16-18. Cash donations can be taken to the Hometown Radio office in Branson or made online. Funds will be used to purchase gifts, and all cash donations are tax deductible. Collection points for gifts are: Hometown Radio office in downtown Branson, the Southern Stone County Fire Protection District Fire Station in Branson West, and Crane City Hall. Information, days and times are posted on the web site http://www.careforkidschristmas.com.”
