HOW can I give?
In addition to dropping off a new, unwrapped gift at any of our drop-off sites, there are several other ways to participate in the gift drive:

  • Wish Lists » Select a gift for a particular child or purchase essentials for a family using our Wish List website. This easy online tool allows you to search by age, gender, gift type, family size, etc. Then go out and purchase the item(s) and deliver to one of our drop-off sites.
  • General Gift Ideas » Our greatest need is gifts for teenagers. Although we serve children of all ages, please consider giving a gift to an older child.
  • Gift Card Challenge » Donate a gift card and help us double its value! Walmart will match – dollar for dollar – up to $5,000 in gift card donations.
