Rudolph Round-Up

About Heartland for Children

Heartland for Children is a community-based care lead agency contracted with the Department of Children and Families that oversees the child welfare system in Polk, Highlands and Hardee Counties. This includes protective services, foster care, adoptions, independent living, prevention, family preservation, family support services and other related services.

About 18 years ago, Heartland for Children launched our Rudolph Round-Up Holiday Toy Drive to help make magical holiday memories for children who have experienced abuse and/or neglect. For the past several years, the goal has been to serve over 1,500 kids in the foster care system with gifts for the holidays.
