Christmas Gift Program

Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington hosts an annual Christmas Gift Giving program to help families in need during the holiday season. Each year with your support we provide hundreds of children, ages 16 and younger, with a Christmas gift.

Thank you for participating in any way you can!

There are 3 ways you can help:

Purchase gifts for the children in a family, or provide gift cards that will allow the parents to pick out the gifts for their children. Click the "Adopt a family" button to see the list of families.
Purchase a general gift that will go into a Christmas basket for a family in need.
Make a monetary donation that will go towards purchasing gifts for children in the program. Please be sure to note "Christmas Gift Program" as the recipient of your gift.
Last year, we helped over 300 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.
