- Before you know it, Christmas will be here. As you get started on your gift list, there are hundreds of kids in our area who could go without presents without your help.

News 18 is proud to team up with iHeartRadio to provide gifts to those children, but we need your help.

There are 1,100 kids in the Chippewa Valley signed up in the Christmas is for Children program.

For just $35, you can make the dream of Christmas come true for our youth.

"It's neat because this year more than ever, we've been starting to get responses from people wanting to sponsor kids that participated in the program years ago," said Dave Deville with iHeartMedia.
