Holiday Gift Program

Holiday Gift Program

This is our largest program and serves approximately 3,500 children each holiday season.  In many cases, the gifts we provide are the only ones that the child receives. The Children’s Fund Holiday Gift Program puts smiles on thousands of children’s faces each holiday season.

We serve foster and low-income children, newborn to age 18 (or AB12 foster kids up to age 21) who are referred by their case manager, probation office, social worker, or public health nurse. 

Children submit a wish list and volunteers help us fill their “wishes.”  All the gifts are new and all are donated by general community members. Last year, 5 year old Ava asked for a doll and a book.  16 year old Steven wanted sports equipment.  Infant Alicia received a set of blocks.  8 year old Thomas got his very first bicycle!   

Donate to Help a Child!

Make a monetary donation so we can use it to fill a child’s wish. You can even order items and have them shipped directly to Children's Fund Holiday Gift Program from our Amazon Wish list. Just visit:
