Christmas is for Kids Program is a way to give to kids in need this holiday. Renae Muscatell of Penquis joined Caitlin Burchill on TV5 News at 5 to explain more about the web-based program.
400 children still need sponsors. They are from Penobscot, Waldo and Hancock Counties. Children of all ages. These are families who otherwise would not have much under the tree. Families facing hardships from unexpected illness, layoffs and while trying to heat their homes and put food on the table.
Options for giving:
1. Online donation and we will do the shopping
2. Select a child or family to buy for, shop online and have the item shipped directly to the sponsoring agency
3. Shop for a child and drop off the gift at the participating agency.
4. Visit Us at the Lincoln Walmart this weekend. We have been there taking cash and Toy Donations- High number of families in need in the Northern Penobscot County area!
