For 30 years, Clark’s Christmas Kids has had the mission of ensuring that every child in the Georgia foster care system has at least one gift on Christmas day. Traditionally, shoppers attended live events in Walmart locations in the metro Atlanta area to purchase gifts from a child’s wish list. Many have made shopping for these precious children a holiday tradition. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have had to go virtual in 2020. Clark Howard, WSB Radio, and DFACS have partnered for all 30 years to bring you the opportunity to make a child’s wish come true and we aren’t about to stop now!
We have done our best to try to keep the experience as “hands-on” as possible. You can still see each child’s wish list via our “Shop Now” page. You can choose to buy one, two, or all 3 gifts on a child’s list. We will also gladly accept monetary donations, all of which will be used to buy gifts for foster children.
In addition to WSB Radio and DFACS, the program has enjoyed support from Walmart, WSB TV, St. Vincent de Paul, and many others over the years. This year we welcome Chris 180. Since 1981, CHRIS 180 has transformed more than 90,000 lives. CHRIS 180 saves, serves and protects traumatized children, adults and families through trauma-informed, solution-focused programming that empowers them to change the direction of their lives. For more information, visit CHRIS180.org. Chris 180 will ensure that the gifts you purchase get to the foster child you chose to buy for on Christmas morning.
More than anything, we need YOU to help us accomplish our mission. We know many are struggling financially this year and may be unable to give. If you are in a position to help, any amount will make a difference. We hope to see you in person in 2021, but for now, please share with us on social media using the hashtag #clarkschristmaskids.
