|Holiday Ways to Help|
There are many ways to help brighten the holidays for children and teens residing at Kids in Crisis during the holidays and for all of the families we serve in the community.
Sponsor a Family’s Holiday Wish List
Fulfill the wishes of a family in need by fulfilling their holiday wish list. We provide you with first names, ages, genders and holiday wishes for the family, after which you can shop and deliver the bundle of gifts to Kids in Crisis who will pass it along to the family. Wish lists typically include a winter coat, boots or shoes, pj’s and a special toy or gift
Sponsor a Child’s Holiday Wish List
Kids in Crisis provides holiday gifts for shelter residents and community families in need. Make some holiday wishes come true for one or more children by fulfilling their holiday wish list. We provide you with the first name, age, gender and holiday wishes for each child, after which you can shop and deliver the gifts to Kids in Crisis who will pass it along to the recipient. Wish lists typically include a winter coat, boots or shoes, pj’s and a special toy or gift.
Set up a Giving Tree for your office or community group
We provide a list of names, ages, and one holiday gift per child. You put the wishes on your tree then drop them off the new, unwrapped gifts at Holiday Central.
