Donate to Christmas for Children

Help us fill the Ben Franklin Transit Toy Trolley!Fill_the_Toy_Trolley

In partnership with Townsquare Media and Ranch & Home, Ben Franklin Transit is co-sponsoring the annual Christmas for Children event, a toy drive to help brighten the holidays for foster children in Benton and Franklin Counties.

Nineteen years ago, Christmas for Children was started to keep the spirit of Christmas alive for local foster children. Today, there are over 600 foster kids in the Tri-Cities area. You can take your family shopping for a less fortunate child, and you'll teach your kids invaluable lessons on thankfulness, empathy, and charitable giving. With your contributions, we’re hoping to make the local foster children's holidays a little brighter (and their stockings a little fuller).

Come drop off a gift, see our decorated toy trolley, and get your picture taken with fun holiday characters!

What:     Bring new, unwrapped gifts for children (up to age 17)

When:    Saturday, Dec 15, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. 

Where:   Kennewick Ranch & Home


If you cannot attend the event, you can bring toys to any of the following locations throughout the Tri-Cities before December 15 and we will deliver them for you.
