Holiday Hopes

The Holiday Hopes Gift Campaign provides gifts, necessities, and meals for children and their families. Thanks to Holiday Hopes Heroes like YOU and your outpouring of support, we can reach our goal and provide a holiday experience full of joy for children and families! This season, our goal is to provide holiday cheer to almost 800 children and many of their families. Help us turn wishes into smiles this holiday season by donating today!

YOU can transform wishes into smiles by:

  • Donating $75 or more to fulfill a Holiday Wish.
  • Shopping online from one of our holiday wish lists and have your gifts(s) delivered right to us.
  • Purchasing a $25 Gift Card for children in Foster Care.
  • Sponsoring a Gift Tree (in-person or virtual) at your company, organization, church, or school.
  • Supporting The Spirit of Josh Fund which raises money for recreation and outdoor activities for the children all year long. Dedicated to the loving memory of Josh Zbytniewski.

Holiday Hopes made my Christmas wish come true.

I've wanted snowboarding equipment ever since my friends started teaching me how to snowboard. When Christmas morning came, I awoke to see a snowboard with all the accessories under the tree. I was speechless!
~ Dylan, age 15

Up until this year, presents weren’t part of my Christmas mornings.

But when I saw that I had presents under the tree with MY name on them, I shrieked with joy! My Barbie play set is exactly what I wanted.

I thought my Christmas had been ruined

since I was unable to spend it at home. With support from the HGS staff, I received the makeup I wanted, among many other gifts. I couldn’t believe it! This was the best Christmas!
