Tampa, Florida -- Kids Charity of Tampa Bay is kicking off its 2012 "Help Us Fill the Wagon" holiday campaign to benefit abused, abandoned and neglected children throughout the Tampa Bay area.

The initiative brings families, businesses and community groups together to provide gifts for foster children, at-risk families and teens aging out of foster care.

Kids Charity of Tampa Bay offers following ways the community can help children in need this holiday season:

• Host a Gift Drive or Fundraiser with company or social group. Tags listing special children, ages, and their wish list can be sent to you, or you can collect gifts from charity's general list of critical needs.

• Sponsor a child or family. The charity can provide the names, ages and wishes of a specific child, children or family.

• Don't have time to shop? Make a donation through the charity's website or send a donation and they will purchase an item or items for you.
