It's that time of year for Project Santa!
KION/CW and T23 have partnered with Gift Inc. for years, to get all the kids in foster care in Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito County gifts for Christmas.
Last year more than 1,000 foster children received a toy through Project Santa, so please help us make it happen again!
Project Santa elves will be in the help center answering phones on Wake Up Central Coast from 5am-7am Dec. 1-5, (831) 784-6321.
You can either:
1) Make a donation
2) Adopt a child and buy the toys on their wish list
If you make a donation, you are done and we guarantee that all of the money goes directly to getting gifts for the foster children in our communities. If you decide to adopt a child and buy the gifts on their wish lists, you need to drop-off the UNWRAPPED toys to one of the following locations Dec. 8-12:
