Children's Christmas Party
This event serves over 1,000 children and their families, sharing the holiday spirit in the most practical way.
Toys for Every Child
Toys Packed with Love
Thanks to the donations of so many, our volunteers spend weeks sorting and packaging toys by gender and age for over 1,000 children. All of the toys that we distribute are new toys, and are checked to ensure that nothing is broken, and that everything is clean.
Meals for the Whole Family
Enjoying the Holidays Together
It’s important to us that the families that attend this event get to share a meal with each other. Our volunteers take great care in preparing an entrée, beverages and desserts that are then served to each family in a ballroom style setting. Warm bellies in a cold season.
Family Human Services
Taking Care of the Need
Every family that attends this event has access to a range of human services. We offer public benefits and homeless prevention screening, and provide emergency shelter, winter clothing, and referrals to other agencies. We take the opportunity to take care of the whole family.
Fun & Entertainment
We offer an entire day of live entertainment, face painting, arts and crafts, and a chance to spend time with Santa. The entire event space is decorated like Christmas morning, and the children can get toys, spend time with their families and enjoy a community that loves them.
Something for Older Kids
Gifts that are Meaningful
So what is to be done for kids that aren’t exactly kids anymore? We offer exciting gifts like drones, bicycles and even gift cards for the older teenagers. We want parents to walk away with something for all of their kids, easing the financial pressures that come with the holidays.
Gifts with a Direct Impact
We provide each child with a toy package that has at least 3 toys in it, not including the children’s books and other educational materials that we include. This means that we must raise at least 3,000 toys to take care of 1,000 children. Contact Us to make a donation.
Making a Donation
All the Ways to Give
The Hosea Helps community has several really strong human services programs whose combined social impact not only reaches thousands of families who need help, but also provides opportunities to thousands of people who want to connect and make a difference. Throughout the year, we produce innovative human services programs that transform individual donations into a singular force against the suffering and instability experienced by families that have faced financial collapse.
A Great Place to Volunteer
Group Opportunities Available
We offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities, and you’ll know the exact social impact of your time and energy. We have opportunities for individuals and groups, businesses and schools, churches and civic organizations. We can accommodate up to 250 people at one time. We’re also a great place to complete those community service hours. If you have a group and would like to impact a particular community or attack a particular problem, we can customize a volunteer opportunity that allows you to achieve that.
