Christmas is just around the corner – and the Child and Senior Advocacy Foundation is asking for your help in making sure no child is forgotten about this holiday season. Morning Show host Jerry Baker was joined on Thursday by Marketing and Public Relations Director, Ella Turner, along with Tammy Amos, who tells us about collecting gifts for county children in need:
Amos added that members of the organization will be out and about all during the holidays, and donating will be easy for anyone wishing to give:
The Rock Run Christmas Parade is scheduled for December 19th.
Also remember – all toy donations should be NEW and UNWRAPPED.
And bear in mind kids need clothing; they also need personal hygiene products and similar items on a daily basis. Your monetary foundation can help provide these essentials. Simply make checks payable to CSAF – 1610 County Road 40, Centre, Alabama 35960 – or, you can call
All donated items remain in Cherokee County and will go to help local residents.
The inspiration for CSAF, a non-profit organization that was founded in Centre, dates all the way back to 2001 when Pam Epperson, along with her husband Bob, launched the program “Christmas for Kids” – which over the years continued to grow beyond the capacity of being handled by just one family; in 2017 Grace Pointe Church of God came on-board to provide a helping hand.
In 2018 they helped 145 children across Cherokee County – with that number increasing to 185 children in 2019 – and this year the need is greater than ever.
