2018 Holiday Gift Drive

Every year the children in our care put together a wish list of gifts they would like to receive for the holiday and every year the York community comes together to make those wishes a reality. Individuals, local businesses, and organizations make this possible and once again we are asking for your help.

Please consider making a donation this holiday season so children in need can have a happy holiday filled with joy and love. Each child deserves to have a gift to open and a wish come true and you can make that happen. There are several ways you can make a child's holiday merry and bright:

  1. We created gift registries on Amazon and Walmart this year to make granting wishes even more convenient. Online shopping is safe and simple and purchases are shipped directly to us!
  2. We have a general wish list of items that the program staff has requested to meet our children’s needs throughout the year.
  3. Consider having your business or organization sponsor gift tags, developed from the wish lists of the children in our care. Organizations can request as many or as few tags as they wish. Click here to register your business or organization.
  4. Lastly, some organizations choose to make a monetary donation toward the purchase of a “big ticket” item for one of our residential group homes (for example, a gaming system, TV, bicycles, etc). This provides a lasting gift that is enjoyed by all residents for many years.

However you choose to give this holiday season, it is greatly appreciated. Wanting a child light up as they see their wishes granted is like nothing else. Thank you for considering lighting up the life of a child.
