If you have not yet had the opportunity to experience this magical event, we invite you to join us for this year’s event. Children’s Christmas Train riders will depart from the Emma Street Depot in Springdale on Saturday, December 7th aboard a restored 1940s era train. The 40 minute ride to Johnson and back will include carolers, humorous skits, and even a visit with Santa himself! After returning to the Springdale Depot families can enjoy holiday games and entertainment – ride ponies dressed as reindeer, operate a model train, write a letter to Santa or just enjoy the characters and puppet show. Children and families are also encouraged to dress in “ugly Christmas sweaters” and participate in either the family fun run or the more competitive 5k race. Please visit the website(childrenschristmastrain.org) for the most up to date information about this year’s event.
Thank you in advance for your generous contribution. I, too, am sponsoring a family this Christmas. My contribution was made in honor of my father, a gentleman who truly loved to celebrate holidays and taught me the true meaning of Christmas. I’ve been doing this for ten years and the look of wonder on the faces of the children as they ride the train and talk with Santa is the only gift I need. Please consider forwarding this note to at least two of your closest friends and/or family members so they too can enjoy the spirit of giving.
Donations to The Children’s Christmas Train, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, are tax deductible. All contributions will be recognized on the website, at the event, and in selected promotional materials based on the level of giving. Sponsorship benefits may be tailored upon request for contributions at the $1,000 level and above. For more information, contact Michael Dougherty at 479-236-7436.

With the assistance of caring donors and volunteers, Children’s House helps abused children heal through extended care and family support in a safe, homelike setting.
Children’s House helps restore the lives of abused and neglected children. Since 1978, thousands of children have received care at Children’s House and have gone on to be productive adults.
To stop the cycle of abuse:
We must work with the parents as well as the children. Once children are in a secure environment, we tailor a plan that addresses the needs of the child while supporting and educating the child’s parents and/or guardians.
Children’s House provides a safe, homelike setting in which healthy relationships are built. At Children’s House, abused and neglected children’s physical and emotional needs are met with nourishing meals, education and therapy, and a loving and supportive staff.
