The holidays are just around the corner!
We invite you to participate in our annual Holiday Giving Program supporting Sacramento’s most vulnerable children and families in a safe and supportive way. Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Sacramento Children’s Home has had to alter our Holiday Giving Program to prioritize the health and safety of our clients, staff, and supporters, while also ensuring we can provide meaningful support to the children and families we serve at a time when they still need our help.
We are strongly encouraging donors to consider participating by purchasing gift cards, participating in the Adopt-a-Family or Child Program, or by making a financial donation, which allows us to purchase much-needed wishes for our kids. If you are unable to participate in one of those ways or prefer to purchase specific items, there is a list of select wishes we have identified as a second option.
Preferred Option 1: Send an SCH Holiday Card to Family or Friends
A bright future is the best gift a child can receive! Your gift to the Sacramento Children’s Home helps to sustain programs that strengthen families and prevent child abuse and neglect. Now more than ever, the children and families we serve need your support. And when you make a donation to SCH this holiday season, we will send a special holiday card for you. Click here to make a holiday donation.
Preferred Option 2: Adopt-a-Child or Family
For families, coworkers, or groups looking to support a child or family in need this holiday season, the Adopt a Child or Family option is the perfect way to connect you in fulfilling the wishes of one of the boys in our Residential Program, or a family that receives services through one of our community programs. You will be given a wish list for a child or family, along with direct delivery instructions. Click here to access the form to adopt a child or family. We will be in touch with you beginning in November, as soon as we’ve matched you with a family or child.
Request Holiday Ornaments
This year we will have a selection of holiday-themed ornaments for you to share with family, friends, coworkers, and customers. Our ornament selection includes Snow Trip donations, Gift Card requests, as well as financial donations all with festive themes that will help brighten the holiday while supporting the vital services we provide at the Sacramento Children’s Home. Click here to access the form to request ornaments. We plan to begin mailing ornaments in early November.
Purchase Holiday Gift Cards & Gifts
Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our ability to receive and distribute toys this holiday season is severely restricted. So in lieu of our usual wish stars, we have identified a list of our most in-demand wishes that can be easily shipped to SCH and distributed to the children and families we serve. Click here for further information on purchasing and shipping gifts, or making a financial donation specifically for purchasing gift cards or gifts for the children and families we serve.
