Instructions on Helping Us

“Celebrate the Child” is an exciting way for us to join in by reaching hurting children in our own communities. Here are some ideas for using “Celebrate The Child” materials to spread the excitement.

 

BROCHURES
Each “Celebrate the Child” brochure is a complete “How to Fill a Gift Bag” kit. With step-by-step instructions about the project, this item is a vital tool to use to get people involved. The brochure includes a boy/girl label that is placed on the handles of each gift bag. Please remember to use ONE TRI-FOLD BROCHURE FOR EACH FAMILY. However, if more than one gift bag is completed, then more boy/girl labels should be used. You can order these directly through us, or you can find printable versions of our brochure here (Adobe Acrobat is required to view the brochure) Click Here To Download

 

EXTRA BOY/GIRL LABELS
Any person or family can make as many gift-filled bags as they wish. With that in mind, we have boy/girl labels available either online or by ordering through us. Remember, ONE LABEL ON EACH GIFT-FILLED BAG. Printable Boy/Girl Labels is found here.

 

LOCAL MEDIA
Get your local media involved in “Celebrate The Child!” We encourage you to contact your local newspaper, radio station, or TV station and tell them how your company, school, or church is having an impact on children here in the Tri-State area.

LOCAL TELEVISION STATIONS:
WLWT-TV, NBC 5
WCPO-TV, ABC 9
WKRC-TV, CBS 12
WXIX-TV, Fox 19
WSTR-TV, WB 64

 

DROP OFF SITES
If you should know of any company, organization, church, or even schools that would like to be a drop off site for “Celebrate the Child,” please have them contact us. We’ll have individuals from this ministry come to pick up the gift-filled bags at the drop-off site.

 

VOLUNTEERS
Volunteers are a big help in getting this project completed and help in various ways. Some help in finding new collection sites, others help in collecting the gift-filled bags from the Collection sites to facility where we stage the gift-filled bags. Still others help in tagging, bagging, and boxing the gift-filled bags.

Some help deliver and / or distribute the gift-filled bags to the children. If your interested in helping out, please visit our contact page and let us know how you could help out. Please note: All volunteers must complete, sign, and submit a Volunteer Release Form before assisting. Printable version of this form can be view here (Adobe Acrobat is needed to view the form): Click To Download.
