Christmas For Kids

Christmas for Kids is a joint fundraising effort sponsored by iHeartRadio station Mix 98.1 and local retired Marine Corps volunteers. Each year since 1994, this campaign has provided Christmas presents for children in need in Defiance, Williams, Henry, Paulding and Fulton Counties. Over 5,000 children are benefactors of Christmas for Kids each year. Starting in the first week of November through the first week in December, we work to collect toy donations and monetary donations to help the cause.

We, along with volunteers, again hope to raise thousands of dollars which will be used to provide toys, books and other gift items for our children in need. We believe every child deserves a Christmas, and we can accomplish this very special goal with your help. Monetary donations or unopened toys are accepted as gifts. Help make a difference in a child's life this holiday season!
