Our hardworking riders have raised just over $1,200 for Team CFCS, but we still need your help! 

You can still make a general donation to our team page and help raise critical funds for our kids.

Our families need your help this holiday season
While the number of individuals we serve grows every year, this year's increase is notable. Our Annual Holiday Gift Drive provides our families with gifts they wouldn't have otherwise; this year, even with CFCS' loyal network of companies and individuals who have long participated in our Drive, we simply need more support. 
   
This is the perfect involvement opportunity for donors of every giving level, as you can team up with friends, family, coworkers, etc., each person contributing what they're able. Whatever you can give will help us provide our families with the holiday they deserve.

Another way you can help is to volunteer during our gift delivery week, assisting with inventory and sorting. Our volunteers are equally important as donors themselves, making it possible for gifts to reach our families in time for the holidays.
