Fall is in the air, and Christmas is just around the corner.
This year, Project Zero is planning to make this a Christmas to remember with “Candyland Christmas To-Go.” Through this new program, Project Zero will be ensuring that more than 350 children and teens in foster care throughout Arkansas have a memorable Christmas.
The nonprofit, working with Arkansas DCFS, is compiling Christmas wish lists from children waiting in foster care. These wish lists will be put on an online Christmas tree, where people, churches and businesses can choose children to shop for Christmas.
Individuals can “adopt” a list for a child or children, donate gift cards or donate funds to the Candyland Christmas To-Go. Project Zero is also seeking individuals to help wrap gifts. To volunteer, contact Cara at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Project Zero will be unable to throw an event to distribute the gifts. Instead, they will be partnering with the Arkansas Trucking Association to deliver the gifts. It will be an all-day gift-delivering race to the finish – just like Santa does it!
