There are 347 children still in need of a sponsor for Christmas in Marshall County, but there’s still time for you to help!
The Marshall County Christmas Coalition is taking applications for sponsors that will help bring Christmas to local children. Sponsorships can be done individually or as a group project.
Individuals, businesses, civic clubs and churches can sponsor a child or several children. Sponsors are encouraged to shop for their child/children themselves. The board suggests that sponsors spend at least $100 per child for those 0-12 years and $125 per child for those 13 and up. Please try to keep items even for those in the same family. If this is not possible, you can send a monetary donation and a Christmas Coalition volunteer will shop for the gifts.
Donations may also be made as a gift in honor or memory of someone.
You can find more information, as well as a sponsor application here.
