The holiday season will be made brighter for the more than 2,000 children and teens in the care of the Cuyahoga County Division of Children and Family Services, thanks to the generosity of our community.

On Tuesday, the DCFS went on the road to 40 different corporations, small businesses, and civic organizations to collect donations of toys, books, games, and more for their annual 'Hope for the Holidays' campaign. The response was overwhelming!

From Lubrizol:

Progressive Insurance:

This is what the toy room at the Division of Children and Family Services looks like after the collections were brought in.

Many other businesses or individuals donated earlier or are continuing to donate later this week.

Children and families will be able to shop for their holiday gifts this Saturday at the DCFS Hope for the Holidays party. They’ll also be able to take a picture with Santa, have milk and cookies, and make a holiday craft.
