The Christmas Season is upon us. It’s time to Catch the Spirit and sponsor a boy for Christmas. The Children’s Center of Ohio in conjunction with the Gallia County Chamber of Commerce is asking for your support in helping make this Christmas memorable for the youth of the Children’s Center of Ohio.
The Children’s Center of Ohio is located in Patriot, Ohio at 55 Allison Road. The Children’s Center is currently working with 36 young men ranging from ages 10 t0 18. Many of these adolescents have experienced lives that we could never imagine, including abuse and neglect. Now, living at the the Children’s Center of Ohio, they have the opportunity to be loved and cared for and to learn what family and community is all about. Our mission is to change the lives of these young men and help them to become happy and healthy adults. These youth are already learning the valuable aspects of community by helping out neighbors, community and businesses right here in Gallia County. They are learning that they do not have to repeat their same past behaviors to get their needs met.
With your help, we want to provide them with a Christmas they won’t forget. These young men deserve the opportunity to feel the spirit of Christmas. We are asking individuals and businesses to ‘Sponsor a Boy’ to provide a Christmas they could not otherwise have. A $50 sponsorship will help make it possible to buy those little extras that make the holiday season special to a young man. What a great way to celebrate the true meaning of the Christmas season. The Children’s Center of Ohio is a 501(c)3 organization, so your gift is tax deductible.
If you would like to be part of Christmas for these young men, you may send your check to my attention, and payable to the Children’s Center of Ohio, 55 Allison Road, Patriot, OH 45658. For more information call (740) 379-9083.
Thank you for your continued support,
