Sponsors Needed To Provide Gifts for Foster Children

Posted:

By Amy Watson 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee DCS Foster Child Christmas Program is under way, and DCS is looking for sponsors to provide presents for the children on Christmas morning.

"It's important to bring hope, that ray of sunshine to them during this period of time," said foster parent and advocate Dorsell Martinez. 

Martinez has four of her own children and nine foster kids at home. Dorsell admitted she would not be able to provide Christmas for her foster children if it had not been for the Christmas program's assistance. 

There are 550 children in foster care in Davidson County and more than 9,000 statewide. The program ends on Dec. 15.

You can help sponsor one or more by calling Rees Greenman at 332-4774 or 253-3311. You can also email him at Rees.Greenman@TN.Gov
