the joy making process
The Holiday Donation Program hand delivers donations of food, clothing, and gifts to children before their particular celebrated holiday. Santa's Helpers Foundation does not discriminate and we donate to all people regardless of ethnicity, religion, or gender. Our work is to give back to our communities and we strive to serve the less fortunate. We find joy in what we do and want to spread that joy to others.
Low-income families first need to submit a request for a donation through our website, located HERE. Parents/Guardians are then vetted to ensure our resources are used for for the most at-risk populations. Upon approval families given a Toy Donation Wish List, which gathers demographics and the specific likes and interests of each child.
Santa's Helpers Foundation uses the information provided on the Toy Donation Wish List to secure food, clothing, and gifts that align with the child's interest. As advocates of youth literacy and youth physical fitness, we ensure that each child is provided a reading level appropriate book and physical activity toy that are relevant to their likes.
Once the donation items are secured for each child, they are wrapped with care and families are notified of their approval and delivery is scheduled. We organize and store all the gifts until they are delivered, but requests for pick-ups are be arranged.
Before the families respective celebrated holiday, our volunteer Santa's Helpers hand deliver the donation items to each family.
