Sheffield Wednesday are proud to support Mission Christmas 2019, providing one of 370 drop-off points for festive gifts across South Yorkshire.
New figures reveal that across the region, one in three children are living in poverty and the Christmas gift appeal hosted by Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids charity has received a heart-warming response by the public.
The Owls host Brentford on Saturday and supporters can donate unwrapped toys and gifts at the Megastore from 9.00am.
Last year, Cash for Kids collected and distributed gifts to help over 28,000 local children aged from new-born to 18-years-old.
Allan Ogle, charity manager for Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids, said: “There are so many families struggling financially at this time of the year and the priorities are keeping the house warm, food on the table and the children in adequate school uniform.
“Christmas falls far down that list and Mission Christmas is a fantastic opportunity to bring our communities together and show those going through a tough time that people where they live care and want to ensure all children have smiles on their faces on Christmas Day.”
