Christmas, they say, is for kids. But for many children, Christmas is the saddest time of the year. So it was with a boy named Craig who wrote a letter to Santa Claus in December 1976. That letter never reached Santa, but it did reach a restaurant in Seattle, Washington called Francisco’s. And it reached people’s hearts! From that night in 1976, The Forgotten Children’s Fund (FCF) has grown into a group of dedicated people who enhance the true spirit of Christmas through the gift of sharing.
The Forgotten Children's Fund is an all volunteer organization and retains no salaried employees. Every year, volunteers work together to raise money to purchase, wrap, and deliver gifts to needy children and their families. Because of supplier contributions and purchasing relationships, each dollar contributed to the Fund is stretched to its fullest.
