Holiday Helper

The Holiday Helper program makes gift giving possible for families who access the Nursery during the winter season of giving. You can donate gift cards to give children and families presents this holiday season.

We are now accepting gift cards for our Holiday Helper program!

In response to Covid, we shifted from collecting physical gifts to collecting gift cards for families and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. Families loved having the ability to purchase gifts that were perfectly tailored to their children’s interests and they shared how special it was to be able to personally pick out gifts for their child. When you generously donate a gift card, you’re giving a parent a closer connection to their child while also providing a child with an extra special holiday season.

Gift cards will provide families with the resources to give their children a special holiday season.

“The gift cards help with the holidays for my son. I thank you all for always being a reliable support team for me and my son.”

*Please consider making a donation through December 24th.*

Purchase gift cards to donate or make a gift and we’ll take care of purchasing the gift cards!
