Christmas for Kids is a fundraising effort sponsored by iHeartRadio station Mix 98.1 and volunteers from Marine Corp League Detachment #758. Each year for the past 28 years, this campaign has provided Christmas presents for children of need in Defiance, Williams, Henry, Paulding and Fulton counties. Over 5,000 children are benefactors of Christmas for Kids each year. Starting in the first week of November through the first week in December, we work to collect toy donations and monetary donations to help the cause.

We, along with volunteers, again hope to raise thousands of dollars which will be used to provide toys, books, and other gift items for our children in need. We believe every child deserves a Christmas, and with your help we can accomplish this very special goal. Monetary donations or un-opened toys are accepted as gifts. Help make a difference in a child’s life this holiday season!

This year the Paulding County sign up location has changed. It will be Friday, November 11th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Antwerp Wrestling Gym located at 202 Archer Drive in Antwerp (next to the MAC Gym).

Please remember to bring proof of Paulding County residency as well as your child’s social security card or birth certificate and if necessary, custody paperwork. Without this information we will not be able to assist you.
