Thank you to all our Secret Santas from past years who provided gifts to hundreds of children in foster care each Christmas!
As we approach the 2017 holiday season, we ask you to become a “Secret Santa Year Round” with a monetary gift that will offer the flexibility to provide necessities for children in foster care all year. (This can even be done on a monthly basis from a checking account or by credit card, or of course as a one-time gift.)
Your gift is an investment in the current and future well-being of a child or several children. Cash gifts assure that funding is available for what is needed most on any given day, whether that is a haircut, a scout uniform, or a family counseling session. Sometimes it might just mean a special trip to get an ice cream cone that says “I love you and am here for you.”
For these reasons, cash donations are most appreciated and will make a significant difference when it is needed most. Your contribution can be mailed to any of the addresses below, given by phone at 618-213-8700 or made online here.
Gifts for under the Christmas tree will still be collected from church groups, organizations and businesses with whom we partner to provide a list of desired and needed items. Please contact Ashlee Lambert at 618-213-9714 or Ashlee.Lambert@caritasfamily.org if you would like to coordinate a group gift collection this Christmas or at any time throughout the year.
