Secret Santa Program


Each year the Georgia Division of Family and Children Service operates a program called "Secret Santa" to help make the holidays a little better for children and youth in Georgia's foster care system. This year requests have been received for more than 8,000 children in 100+ Georgia counties. For the last few years, Secret Santa has allowed children to ask for 3 items with a cumulative value of no more than $150.

For 26 years, Clark Howard has helped serve these children through "Clark's Christmas Kids." With Clark doing several live broadcasts on 750 AM (WSB) from Walmart locations in Metro Atlanta, we still need your help. Your donation will allow us to purchase gifts, get them to our distribution facility, and into the hands of the children on Christmas morning. Any contribution you can make will get us that much closer to meeting our goal of 3 gifts for 8,500 of Georgia’s foster children.

These children have experienced major traumatic events early in their young lives due to no fault of their own. Because of abuse and/or neglect by adults, they are away from their families, their pets, and their familiar surroundings during this holiday season. Please consider making a donation now to make their Christmas morning a little happier.
