Winter Wishes 2021

THANK YOU to our community for all the Winter Wishes gifts purchased in 2021! We’ll be back in November 2022!


Let’s spread joy this holiday season! We’re proud to once again host our annual holiday (virtual) gift tag program, Winter Wishes. Many of our partners are still distributing toys, clothing, and other requested items to the kids and families they serve and we’re excited to be able to help more than 400 people in need receive a little comfort and joy this holiday season.

***Please note: gifts should be delivered/mailed/shipped directly to our partner programs .***

Thank you for your patience with our technology.  You can search for a specific program, a particular item, name or age, but you won’t be able to filter.  The sign up will look like you’re signing up to Volunteer; please disregard, you’re just signing up to “take” a tag.  The dates listed next to each gift (12/31) are meant as a placeholder.  The actual deadlines vary by organization, and are listed both in each org’s blurb, and in the confirmation email you will receive upon signing up.

Email us with any questions.

Tags

The dates listed next to each gift (usually 12/31) are meant as a placeholder.  The actual deadlines vary by organization, and are listed both in each org’s blurb, and in the confirmation email you will receive upon signing up.

Our partner organizations understand our donors (you!) expect to spend $20-$30 per gift.  Some participants have requested items that are more expensive (dream big!); a gift card of $20-$30 toward the purchase of that item is an acceptable substitute.

By signing up, you’re committing to purchasing and either delivering or sending the item requested.  You will get a confirmation email with the due date and the delivery address (gifts for our partner organizations should be delivered directly to them).  Thank you for understanding once you’ve signed up for a specific tag, no one else is able to “take” that tag.

Please let us know as soon as possible if you’re no longer able to fulfill the tag’s request.
