Children's Protective Services (CPS) announces the kick off of the 26th annual "Christmas is for Kids" campaign. The campaign will run from Nov. 25 through Dec. 20, 2013.

For the past 25 years the community has supported this event by giving Christmas gifts to children who are currently involved with CPS. The children range in age from birth to 18 years old. Last year over 750 children involved with CPS received gifts because of the success of the campaign. The children who receive the benefits of this program are children who remain in the home with their parents. These children do not qualify or receive gifts from any other source or program and are children who would not otherwise receive gifts at Christmas time. Gifts for these 750 children are made possible solely because of the donations from the community and the support this program has received throughout the years from generous donors.

The community is asked to drop off new, unwrapped toys to any of the following McDonalds:

Lubbock (except Walmart locations)

Levelland

Post

Brownfield

Slaton

Plainview

Littlefield

Muleshoe

Lamesa

Thanks so much for helping us to provide Christmas to hundreds of children that Children's Protective Services works with who might otherwise not have presents Christmas morning.
