Christmas means so much to a child. It’s a time of miracles, celebration, and wonder. But for many CityKidz families, it’s often a time of stress and dismay as tight budgets collide with children’s hopeful hearts.
You can make sure every child and every family feels the joy and magic of the Christmas season. With your support, faith, hope and love can fill our kids’ homes, not tension or disappointment. You can help show every child that dreams can come true.
$50 will help us brighten a child’s Christmas with:
But even more important than the toys, trinkets and food your donation will provide, your gift will show vulnerable children – and their families – that they are seen, known and loved during what is often a difficult time of year. Your gift will tell them that they matter and that someone is thinking of them.
