Give the Gift of Holiday Cheer 

Join our holiday toy drive and help us reach 600 + children this year!

The Holiday Tree is a unique and fun opportunity to donate time and gifts. Create memorable shared experiences for families who may otherwise struggle to provide toys and gifts for their children during the holiday season. The families we serve during Holiday Tree are participants of Champions for Children programs. Review our families’ wish lists and select any number to fill. Families are availalbe for sponsorship on a first-come basis.
