Christmas Gift Program

Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington is organizing a Christmas Gift Giving Program to help families in need. Each year, with your support, we serve hundreds of children, ages 16 and younger, but in order to do so, we need YOUR help!

Thank you for participating in any way you can!

There are 3 ways you can help:

You can "adopt a family" — purchase gifts for all the children or giftcards that will let the parents/guardians shop for their own families. Press the button to see the list of families in need!
You can purchase "generic" gifts — we will put them in our family gift baskets for a family who needs them.
You can donate money— funds go to help run our 63 programs (including this one) across 48 locations in the DC metro area.
Last year, we helped over 600 families!
This year, donors have already "adopted" over --- children!
But there are still --- children who need your help!

Help make a family's Christmas wishes come true!

Gift Program Details

You can choose to either purchase NEW, non-violent gifts for each child, or purchase giftcards and let the parents/guardians do the shopping for their own family. The "suggested amount" for gift cost is $35 per child.
