Right now in Yellowstone County, Child & Family services is caring for more than 700 children within the foster care system. These children are abandoned, dependent, neglected or abused. When children are placed in kinship foster care, the unexpected addition to a family can be expensive. We want to make sure these children, who oftentimes are removed from their homes with nothing but the clothes on their backs have a Christmas.

Can you adopt one or more? 

To adopt, simply purchase the items in need and label the unwrapped gift with the child's name and stocking number. Feel free to drop off gifts to Child & Family Services at the address below or at these generous businesses who are helping provide additional places to drop off and donate gifts.
