Who We Are
Christmas is for Children is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, non-denominational organization dedicated to providing children with the love, care, and joy that comprises the spirit of the holidays. We partner with many organizations and individuals who contribute gifts, food, funds, or time.
In 1991, two social workers answered letters to Santa Claus (found in the New York City post office) from the children of four needy families, making their Christmas wishes come true. Since then, Christmas is for Children has supported tens of thousands of children in need.
How Our Program Works
Various organizations throughout the area help us identify families who otherwise would not have a holiday celebration and help their children complete wish lists with three gifts: something each child wants, something he or she needs and something educational. Supporters “sponsor” a child by shopping for items specified on the wish lists and delivering wrapped and tagged gifts to one of several prearranged drop-off sites in early December.
What makes Christmas is for Children unique is our approach to bestowing charity so that our beneficiaries retain their dignity and witness the true spirit of Christmas and the very best of humanity.
