Celebration of Giving

Monday, Nov 26, 2018 - Monday, Dec 31, 2018
Your support will make Christmas wishes come true for more than 25,000 local children and families who might not otherwise be able to celebrate the holidays! Now in its 71st year, Catholic Charities annual Celebration of Giving collects holiday gifts for children and families served by Catholic Charities' wide array of programs. The mission of the program is to specifically provide our clients – both children and families – who are in need of assistance at the holidays with new toys, clothing and necessary household items through the collection of donations from individuals, corporations, parishes, and other organizations. Your financial support assists Catholic Charities with the costs of distributing gifts and makes this program possible!
If you would like your donation to go toward purchasing toys, please write “For toys” in the Leave a Comment box. You can also help make a child's holiday brighter by purchasing a toy from one of our wish lists! Order online and your gift will be shipped directly to our workshop. Please click on one of the following links to purchase a toy or home goods!
