As a result of an article published in the Herald Review, there seems to be some confusion regarding the annual Gifts For Kids effort in Osceola County, and the Evart Giving Tree held each year in Evart.

The Osceola County Gifts for Kids program WILL CONTINUE its outreach this year as it does every year.

Toys for Tots of Mecosta and Osceola counties has disbanded, but it was only one supplier of the Gifts for Kids programs. As a result of the local Toys For Tots demise, the Gifts for Kids program will lose a portion of its donations, and is in need of more local giving than ever.

Gifts For Kids will continue giving holiday gifts to Osceola County residents in need.

Please join the effort to make sure no family or child goes without during the coming holiday season.
