Child Focus providing food and toys to needy kids

December 4th, 2009    Author: Staff Report    Filed Under: Community

The Child Focus Giving Tree Program is using The Paul Sturgill Memorial Fund to help purchase clothing, food and toys for needy children and families over the holidays this year.

Paul Sturgill’s wife, Renelda Sturgill, also an employee at Child Focus, said that Christmas was one of Paul’s favorite holidays and the Giving Tree program is a way to honor his memory while helping families in need.

A memorial was established for Paul at Child Focus after he died Dec. 23 last year in a car accident. Paul was the Owensville Police Chief and was very invested in his community. Paul’s memorial received donations from family, co-workers, friends and fellow police officers.

The Giving Tree program at Child Focus is also supported by donations from corporate and faith-based sponsors, staff and community members.

The Giving Tree program collects, wraps and distributes donated coats, non-perishable food items, kids clothing, shoes, toys, grocery, gas or retail gift cards to help families have a brighter holiday, while providing for their most basic needs.

Donations to Child Focus, Inc., a private nonprofit 501(c)(3) are tax deductible. Families participating in the Giving Tree program are in need and enrolled in Child Focus Head Start, Mental Health or Foster Care programs.

Donations are also received year-round to help with family needs outside of the holidays.

Only together can we support our community and make the difference in the live of children and families in our community! At last count, 10 families are still in need of a sponsor.

Call (513) 752-1555 today to see how you can support a child. Sponsors will receive a child's wish list, including specific clothing and shoes sizes and toys. Each family also receives non-perishable food items.
