Community Toy Chest seeks sponsors for gifts for foster care children

Community Toy ChestBATAVIA, Ohio (Oct. 22, 2014) –  Last year, the Community Toy Chest made a difference in the lives of 350 children in foster care in Clermont County during the holidays.

This year, Clermont County Protective Services (CPS) hopes that generous sponsors will come forward again to make Christmas a little brighter for these kids, who have been removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect.

CPS plans to have holiday gifts for at least 350 children, some of whom could come into its custody as late as Christmas Eve, said Sanna Gast, coordinator of the Toy Chest. Ages of children range from birth to 18 years old.

CPS is looking for individuals, families, companies or organizations to sponsor a child, either by donating money to CPS or by buying gifts for a particular child or family

If you are interested in sponsoring a child, email  Gast at, or call her at 513-732-7264.
