Franklin County Children’s Services Holiday Wish Program
Every child looks forward to the joy and magic of the holiday season. But without the help of the community, more than 5,000 abused, neglected, and troubled children will have no one to provide their holiday gifts. These children are under the care of Children Services and may live in their own homes, with relatives, in foster homes, or in residential care.
For over 19 years GBQ associates have donated time and money to purchase Christmas gifts for less fortunate children in Central Ohio. Associates donate funds and spend time shopping and wrapping the gifts. In 2011 associates sponsored 20 children, ages 11 and under (at $40 per child) and raised an additional $5,315 to be used towards gift cards for older youths served by Franklin County Children Services.
