Help the foster children of the Mid-Columbia have a memorable Christmas this year!Newstalk 870, Townsquare Media and Ranch & Home have teamed up again for Christmas for Children. We're working with the foster care agencies of the Columbia Basin to ensure all the children in foster care will have at least one wonderful gift.

There are several thousand children between the ages of 1 and 18 in our region who need our help. Here's how to do it: stop by any of the following locations and donate an unwrapped toy or gift for a boy or girl. Not sure what to get? Give money and then people who know the child will purchase the toy.

Here are the drop-off locations:

  • Ranch & Home in Pasco and Kennewick
  • UPS Stores - Richland Washington Plaza, Kennewick Plaza
  • Lukes Carpet and Design Center at 8428 Gage, Kennewick
  • Affordable Auto Liquidators at 4123 West Clearwater, Kennewick
  • Delta HVAC at 80 Wellsian Way, Richland
  • Cobalt Mortgage at 8121 West Quinalt, Kennewick
  • Gamache Landscaping and Nursery, 1212 Columbia Park Trail, Richland
  • Beavers Furniture, Kennewick
  • Copper Ridge Apartments at 5501 Hildebrand Blvd., Kennewick

There will be bins at each location and you may inquire with each business about making a donation for a gift to be purchased. Gifts and donations gladly accepted through Dec. 15.
