Christmas Sponsor Program
On behalf of everyone at Catholic Charities, particularly the families we serve, we want to express gratitude for your past generosity. Many families have been blessed by your kindness. This year will be no different, as many are still struggling.
As we draw nearer to the Christmas season, we want to call upon your generosity once more. This year, we are expanding our Christmas program and giving sponsors new ways to spread seasonal cheer across the entire diocese.
Sponsorship Option A: Host a Giving Tree
Catholic Charities can give you suggested collection items, or you can collect new items such as toys, clothing, diapers, household products, hygiene items or gift cards for groceries and gas.
These items can be pooled by staff for program support and family assistance at Christmas and throughout the year.
We ask sponsors to agree to provide new items only.
Sponsorship Option B: Sponsor a family
Catholic Charities will provide information about the children: gender, age, requested items, interests and clothing sizes. We ask sponsors to agree to provide new items only.
Each family is assigned a family code. To ensure each child gets the correct gift, please place all gifts for each child in a separate container and include the gender, age and code on each package.
Please do not wrap gifts, but consider providing paper, tape or ribbon for the parents to participate in gift wrapping.
Families often appreciate household items like detergent, cleaning supplies, toilet paper, etc.
Contact your local office to let them know your giving preference or to be matched with a family.
