Thank You! Operation Giving Tree Success

By Toni Garbo

CLEVELAND -- Fox 8 would like to thank each and every one of you who helped make Operation Giving Tree 2012 a success!

For the last several years, FOX 8 has teamed up with Cuyahoga County Children and Family Services to help make sure every foster child in the county has a gift for Christmas. 

More than 1,800 children are in foster care in Cuyahoga County. Without Operation Giving Tree, some of them would not receive anything for Christmas. Every year we have reached out to you, our viewers, for your support and you have always come through and amaze us. 

If you didn't get a chance to donate to Operation Giving Tree on Wednesday there is still time! Simply drop off your donation at any northeast Ohio Honda Dealership through December 9th.

Here is what we need:

Mp3 players


Action figures

Dolls (multi-racial)




Board games


Bath and Body products



$25.00 gift cards so the teens can buy clothes for school.

All these gifts must be new and unwrapped so the social workers can match the right gift for each child.

We will also take any wrapping paper and scotch tape.

Operation Giving Tree is sponsored by The Northern Ohio Honda Dealers and Church on the North Coast.

*Watch Angelica sing with the Church on the North Coast Choir!

Thank you for your help in making this holiday season a little brighter for these children.
