Christmas For Kids program needs your help

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Children's Protective Services annual Christmas for Kids program helps families at CPS who would not otherwise have Christmas.

"The people that were providing Christmas for, don't have Christmas any other way than this program," Christmas for Kids coordinator Shawn Vandygriff said.

Christmas for Kids barrels can be found at almost every McDonalds in the South Plains. The program asks that people in the community bring a new unwrapped gift to any of those locations. One of the main locations to donate a toy is at the McDonalds in Lubbock at 2433 S Loop 289.

Pastor James Aldridge has fostered and adopted children from CPS and members of his church select a group of kids to buy presents for every year.

"We try to go as a family when we can to buy the presents," Aldridge said.

"Each year they get anywhere from 20 - 30 children and his parishioners and his family have shopped for these kids," said Vandygriff.

Right before Christmas, CPS collects all the donated toys and has a gifting party for the families in need. Last year over 400 families received gifts for their children that they otherwise wouldn't have.

If you are interested in sponsoring a child, foster care, or any of the CPS programs you can contact Shawn Vandygriff at the number listed below.
