  • Sponsor a Youth —"Sponsor" a youth in our care to give them a joyous holiday by purchasing items off their holiday wish list. Due to the nature of our work, new wish lists will be added through November as new children are brought into our care. 

  • Gift Gallery — Donate new, unwrapped items for children, teens and adults for our Gift Gallery. Families in our community-based programs get to shop at the Gift Gallery at no cost to ensure everyone in the household has a gift to open during the holidays.

We partner with MAJ-R Thrift to provide curbside donation pick-ups and convenient drop-off bins throughout the city for your gently used items. Those items are then sold at one of their local thrift store locations. A portion of sales are donated back to us each month. If you would like to schedule a curbside pick-up, you will work directly with MAJ-R Thrift to coordinate those details when one of their trucks will be in your area next. You can schedule a pick-up time  online based on when trucks will be in your neighborhood. They also provide convenient donation bins located throughout the city for you to donate smaller items.
