Online Toy Drive Support Kids in Foster Care

This holiday season, support the Kids Crossing 2020 Toy Drive, a digital Toy Drive that supports more than 300 kids in foster care.

Kids Crossing, created by foster parents, for foster parents, is a child placement agency in Colorado Springs, Denver, Pueblo, and La Junta. They believe every child deserves a safe and loving home. The nonprofit is focused on strengthening families so they may provide the best care to kids entrusted to them.

In years past, Kids Crossing has secured partnerships with area businesses to promote holiday gift giving to foster children – ornaments on trees in the lobby of office buildings where people picked and purchased gifts for the children and returned it wrapped to the HR department.

Clearly, life is different this year with so many people working remote. Kids Crossing has evolved the program, partnering the generosity of local businesses with a safe and convenient way to give a gift.

Visit Kids Crossing’s online toy wish list, pick a child, purchase the gift through Amazon and have it shipped directly to the Kids Crossing office for delivery before Christmas Day.
