We need you to make a difference in the life of a child who is receiving services through Child Welfare this season! By helping to provide a gift to local children who are receiving the assistance of CWS, you are making a difference and making life a bit better for these children.
Help CWS and Friends of Tulare County ensure that every child and youth in Tulare County who receives Child Welfare Services and is not in their home this holiday season is given a gift by:
Making a donation of a new, unwrapped gift for a child or youth in designated boxes at work locations throughout the County. You may also make a tax-deductible financial contribution through Friends of Tulare County, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, by mailing a check to 5957 S. Mooney Blvd., Visalia, CA 93277, and writing “CWS Toy Drive” in the memo line. Additionally, you can visit www.friendsoftularecounty.org, click on the CWS Toy Drive tab and donate securely online via PayPal.
This year, the CWS Toy Drive also has partnered with UsBorne Books, who will match your contribution, allowing twice as many children to benefit from your generosity. With over a third of Tulare County residents lacking basic literacy skills, your contribution of a book will help create a better future for our children.
To donate books to our book drive, please go to http://bit.ly/BookDrive2017, choose the books you would like to donate (books for ages 0-10 preferred), and proceed to pay/check out. On the shipping screen, be sure to click on the eFair Shipping Option (under Shipping Address) so you are not charged shipping and so the books ship to our Dream Distribution Center.
CWS Social Workers will distribute the gifts to CWS foster children and youth throughout the first week of December.
Thank you for supporting the children of Tulare County and being a part of changing a life!
