Join 104.1 KSGF in helping bring the joy of Christmas to foster children in the Ozarks.

KSGF is happy to partner for the 12th year with the staff at Great Circle to fulfill Christmas wishes of foster children in need.  Many of the children in the care of Great Circle don’t have family with whom they can spend the holidays, or they live with foster families who cannot afford gifts.  In some cases, the toys collected from this drive will be the only gifts a child receives. Thank you for making a difference in the life of a child!

Here is how you can help:
Stop by one of the following locations and pick out a girl or boy from the Santa‘s Angels Christmas Tree.

  • A-1 Custom Car Care in Springfield
    1935 W Sunset St, Springfield, MO 65807 (Across from Classic Rock Coffee)
    Monday – Saturday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  • Altec Computers
    3845 South Campbell, Springfield (near Harbor Freight)
    Monday- Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

  • Anchor Tactical Supply
    2346 S Campbell Ave, Springfield, MO 65807
    Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. & Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

 

  • Greene County Freight & Food Sales
    3055 W Kearney St, Springfield, MO 65803

Each child represents a girl or boy under the care of Great Circle to “adopt” for Christmas.  Angels will represent girls, and toy soldiers will represent boys.  Each angel and toy soldier will be marked with your child’s name, a code number, age, clothing size, and a Christmas wish list.  You do not have to buy everything on the list for the child as it is just a “wish list.”

Once you have picked the child you would like to adopt, take their info off the tree and with you shopping. Once you have shopped for the gifts- mark each gift with the child’s name and code number so we can make sure the right gifts go to the right child.  For safety of the children please do not wrap your gifts.

Then, bring your unwrapped, unopened gifts to the KSGF Studio, 2330 W. Grand Street in Springfield.  The office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  All gifts must be returned by Friday, December 13, 2019.

When dropping off your gift, please make sure to attach the child name card and the receipt.
