Help us fill the Ben-Franklin Transit Toy Trolley!

Donation day is this Saturday, December 15th - 9am – 3pm at the Kennewick Ranch and Home store on Columbia Center Blvd.

Make a donation of a new toy/gift for area foster children ages birth to 18.

Ben Franklin Transit is co-sponsoring the annual Christmas for Children event, a toy drive to help brighten the holidays for foster children in Benton and Franklin Counties.

Nineteen years ago, Christmas for Children was started to keep the spirit of Christmas alive for local foster children. Today, there are over 600 foster kids in the Tri-Cities area. You can take your family shopping for a less fortunate child, and you'll teach your kids invaluable lessons on thankfulness, empathy, and charitable giving. With your contributions, we’re hoping to make the local foster children's holidays a little brighter (and their stockings a little fuller).

Come drop off a gift, see our decorated toy trolley, and get your picture taken with fun holiday characters!

We will have 20 pairs of tickets to the home hockey games in January for people who donate (while supplies last).

Also, some jolly revelers will be dressed up as reindeer, snowmen, and elves! Packets of hot chocolate will be given away and candy canes, too!

The toy trolley will be decked out and anyone donating gets to climb aboard and ring the bell.
