For most children, Christmas morning is filled with laughter and the joy and excitement of opening a brightly-wrapped Christmas present. Unfortunately, not every child has that holiday experience - this year is especially tough - but you can help. Here's how you can help local children in Central New York this Christmas season.

Lite 98.7 is partnering with the Rome Rescue Mission to help make Christmas a little merrier for children in need.

If you're interested in granting a particular child's Christmas wish, check out the list of kids below and fill out the form below.

New, UNWRAPPED gifts should be clearly labeled with the child's name and number, can be dropped off in the Townsquare Media lobby at 9418 River Road in Marcy, NY - Monday through Friday, 8:00 - 5:00, from now until Friday, December 15, 2023.

Please select the child or children you'd like to adopt (you don't have to get every single item listed), fill out the form below, and we'll let you know when you're all set, so don't go shopping immediately after you pick a name! Please know that we try to keep this list as current as possible, but there are times when people request the same kids at the same time, so please wait for us to confirm that you're set with the child or children you selected.

Note: If a child is already crossed off, it means they have been taken. Responses will be provided within 24 hours at max. Thank you for your patience!
