KWTX drops off gifts for foster kids

By  | 

WACO, Texas (KWTX) - Christmas is still months days away, but it's never too early to start thinking about children who don't have a family to call their own and hardly get any gifts.

So the KWTX Foster Care Project, which places kiddos in homes with the help from The Department of Family and Protective Services, sprung into action.

Our Pete Sousa made a trip over to DFPS in Waco to drop off about $300.00 worth of gifts, on behalf of the station.

KWTX made the move to donate after we became aware of the growing need.

"People don't realize these are the only gifts that they get, yearly," said DFPS Adoption Caseworker Cori Edmonds. "At Christmas and sometimes on their birthday, but not all the time. So as a caseworker, it's important to me to utilize resources and find outside agencies to provide gifts and put a smile on their face."

Edmonds said gifts for teenagers are the hardest to come by.

If you want to get involved you can contact CASA or your local DFPS.
