Children's Christmas Party
This event serves over 1,000 children and their families, sharing the holiday spirit in the most practical way.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
