Give to Crittenton Foster Youth this #GivingTuesday

First comes Black Friday shopping for your family. Then a Cyber Monday splurge for yourself. And finally there is #GivingTuesday a day reserved for your favorite non-profit.

The holidays are finally upon us and at Crittenton Services for Children and Families (CSCF) we are busy coordinating a new holiday donation drive to benefit our foster youth!

Our short-term holiday specific #GivingTuesday gift drive called the “Crittenton Christmas Crew” is in operation from late October to December 4, 2015. Our goal for this holiday season is to be able to fulfill at least one holiday wish for each of our foster youth.

Are you looking to donate to a local non-profit that helps foster youth? Were you planning to donate to a worthy non-profit during the holidays? Is #GivingTuesday something you wanted to take part in this year?

If you’ve answered, “yes”, to any of these questions why not consider Crittenton Services as one of your priority charities this holiday season?

In order to participate in our “Crittenton Christmas Crew” gift drive you’ll need to connect with our fundraising and volunteer department and request a “holiday wish card”. This holiday wish card will list the name of one of our foster youth, their gender, their age, and of course their holiday wish.

All donations must be new, gift wrapped, and delivered to Crittenton’s main offices at 801 E. Chapman, Suite #203, Fullerton, CA. 92831. We appreciate all donations being delivered to our offices during regular business hours Monday through Friday from 9:00AM to 4:00PM. We apologize for not being able to pick up the gift and truly appreciate your assistance in helping us deliver this holiday joy to the foster youth in our care.

Know that all donations collected for the Crittenton Christmas Crew holiday campaign goes directly to our foster youth.
