Holiday gifts collected through the SCC Angels program in 2020

The Safe Children Coalition (SCC) is seeking holiday gifts for foster/vulnerable children through Dec. 17. SCC's Angels program works to ensure that foster and other vulnerable children in Florida's Circuit 12, which encompasses Sarasota, Manatee and DeSoto counties, feel the warmth of the holiday season through the donation of gifts from caring members of the community. The program matches sponsors to children's gift wish lists. Families, businesses, nonprofit organizations and religious institutions can request wish lists, shop and then bring the gifts to Safe Children Coalition. Those interested in participating can make monetary donations that help support programs for children who are homeless, abused and neglected. The coalition serves nearly 8,000 children a year.

For more information or to request a child's holiday wish list, call the SCC office at (941) 587-9167, email [email protected], or click here for additional information.
