Sponsor a Foster Child's Christmas

Tammy and Kipper's Christmas is for Kids

Every child deserves a wish come true. The holidays are full of uncertainty and questions for foster children. Questions like, "Will Santa find my new house?" or "Will anyone remember me this Christmas?" 

The Wish List is a Buncombe County program aimed at making sure foster children in our care get a present this holiday season.

There are 2 easy ways to find a foster child’s wish list:

  • Go to and click on Christmas is for Kids to find the child or children you would like to sponsor, and enter your contact information. You are welcome to select more than one wish list.
  • If you would like to talk with us about sponsoring a child’s wish list, call (828) 367-8487 or email

Then, either wrap gifts or place them in a large bag with a label that includes: Child’s Name, Age, and number on the wish.

Don’t have time to shop? You can make a tax-deductible Wish List donation through our nonprofit partner, Buncombe County Service Foundation.

Together we can make the holidays magical and memorable for our Buncombe County children in foster care. Please consider a sponsorship or a donation.
