Christmas is for Children seeking donors to sponsor a child

Eau Claire (WQOW) – For some it’s too early to talk about Christmas. For others, it is never too early!

For the children in our community whose Christmases are in question, now is the time to act.

This year is the 26th annual Christmas is for Children.

The event gives gifts to Chippewa Valley kids thanks to the generosity of people like you, and now is the time to sign up.

To sponsor a child, email christmasisforchildren@iheartmedia.com. 

December 7 is the drop off deadline and it is approaching fast.

The gifts cost about $35, a small price to pay to make a child’s Christmas.

News 18 is a proud sponsor of Christmas is for Children.

Below is information from the program’s organizers: 

We will send you the child’s first name, ID#, gender, age, and specific

gift wish. We ask that you spend approximately $35.00 per child and make sure

to wrap or place the present in a gift bag and have the ID# visible. You then have

until Friday, December 7th to drop off your present at one of our great

sponsor locations.
