FOX 8 is proud to sponsor Operation Giving Tree for the 8th year.
It’s a program started by the Cuyahoga County Children and Family Services to help provide the foster children in the county a gift for the holidays.
Thanks to our generous viewers, these children have had a gift for Christmas.
Without you, some of them would not have received anything.
Operation Giving Tree will be held today.
Join us in our front yard right here at FOX 8. We are located at 5800 Dick Goddard Way. You can drop off your items until 7pm Wednesday.
Here is a list of items that are a big hit with the children and teens.
A diverse mix of Barbie dolls

Spider Man gifts

$30.00 gift cards
The gift cards could be the Visa or MasterCard gift cards, it will allow a teenager to use at any store.
We are asking for gift cards to be at least $30.00 because this may be the only gift the teenager will receive. This allows them to buy something they would like.
A special thanks to the members of the University of Akron Steel Drum Band who performed for our Operation Giving Tree event.
They will be performing at Akron’s First Night Celebration on December 31. For more information click here.
Your generosity has made Operation Giving Tree a huge success for the last seven years.
Help us to make our 8th year the best ever.
