Holiday Project

Dear Friends,

As you may already know, Manatee Children’s Services is a non-profit, Child Advocacy Center that has been providing child abuse prevention and intervention programs for over three decades in our communities for our most vulnerable population, child victims of abuse. Each year during the holiday season we look to individuals or organizations to assist in fulfilling the gift wishes of the children that we serve as part of our “Holiday Project”. The children participating in this project reside in our Emergency Shelter, one of our three Group Homes, or have a caregiver involved in one of Manatee Children’s Services’ support programs. All of the children provided for are victims of, or at risk of experiencing, abuse or neglect. 

If you or your company chooses to become a holiday sponsor, we will provide you with a child’s “wish list” that will note the child’s first name, age, gender, and gift wishes. The wish list is intended to provide suggestions to help with your gift selections, but you have the freedom to determine what to buy and how much to spend. If you prefer, you can make a financial donation and Manatee Children’s Services’ staff will do the shopping. Also, you can shop on the MCS Amazon account. Please see our website for the link.

If you are interested in making this holiday season brighter for a child in need by becoming a holiday sponsor, please fill out and return the form below. The deadline for gift turn in is 12/15. Please feel free to contact us at (941) 345-1200 if you have any questions. Thank you for your consideration!

Happy Holidays!

Ally Zanon & Jocina Newsome
