ATLANTA – Clark Howard and Cox Media Group (CMG) Atlanta’s News 95.5 and AM750 WSB (WSB-AM/WSBB-FM) are partnering with the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) and St. Vincent de Paul Georgia to provide gifts for more than 10,000 foster kids across Georgia with Clark’s Christmas Kids.
“Georgia’s foster care system grew to 15,000 children earlier this year. While that number has begun declining due to the hard work and dedication of our staff, there are still thousands of children away from their families for the holidays needing a little cheer,” said Tom C. Rawlings, Interim DFCS Director. “The Secret Santa program reassures them that many people do care, and for that, we are grateful.”
To donate or shop for a child this holiday season, please visit one of the following Walmart locations:

“Foster care programs put a roof over a child’s head, provide adult supervision and food to eat, but providing a winter coat, or a tablet for school, is where you and I come in,” said Clark Howard.
