Thanksgiving is just day after tomorrow and that means Christmas is just around the corner. With that in mind, Phillips County Division of Children and Family Services is once asking the public to express their gratitude for they joy they are experiencing by donating a gift or sponsoring a foster child.
PCCFS is asking for help for their “special kids”  – children who will be spending the holiday season without their own family.  Everlyne Chambers, PCCFS county supervisor, is asking that you help the unhappiness become more bearable by making one of those “special kids” smile on Christmas morning.
“Please make a monetary donation, sponsor a particular child or buy a gift from one of the many ‘wish lists’ that have been given to us by our children,” said Chambers.
“Our children are considered ‘special’ because they have been forced to endure situations that each found him/herself in by no fault of their own,” continued Chambers. “Our children have been removed from their families after neglect or abuse was found to be an imminent risk factor as it related to their health and safety. Christmas time is a joyous time for our children. We need you to help our kids smile.”
Contributions can be made payable to Phillips County Foster Children’s Christmas. Please mail to P.O. Box 277, Helena, AR 72342. To sponsor a foster child or buy gifts listed on the children’s “wish lists” please contact chambers, Jackie Henry or Mary Clark at 870-816-3200. The PCCFS office is located on the Highway 49 Bypass
