Donate to Christmas for Children to help local foster children

Help us fill the Ben Franklin Transit Toy Trolley!Fill_the_Trolley_image3

2019 marks the 20th Anniversary of Christmas for Children

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 hundreds of foster kids in Benton and Franklin Counties.

Twenty 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).

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

When:    Saturday, Dec 14, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. 

Where:   Ranch & Home in Kennewick 



If you cannot attend the event on December 14, you can bring toys for the foster children to the following locations before that date and we will deliver them for you:

Ben Franklin Transit:

  • Richland: 1000 Columbia Park Trail
  • Kennewick: 7109 W. Okanogan Place

Ranch & Home: 

  • Kennewick: 845 N Columbia Center Blvd
