SCH Holiday Giving Program 2021

The holidays are just around the corner! Help the Sacramento Children’s Home create special memories for our children and families.

We invite you to participate in our Holiday Giving Program supporting Sacramento’s most vulnerable children and families. Here are multiple generous ways you can get involved:

A bright future is the best gift a child can get! Your gift to the Sacramento Children’s Home helps to sustain programs that strengthen families and prevent child abuse and neglect. Click here to make a donation.

SCH serves many local families in need. Help make their holiday wishes come true by helping to provide household goods, gifts for the children, or other essential items to make their season bright! Complete this form and submit no later than November 1. We will match you with a child or family/families in one of our programs.

Every year the Sacramento Children’s Home fulfills the wishes of well over 1,500 of the local children we serve. By requesting Wish Star, Snow Trip, Gift Card and Donation Ornaments you or your organization help us make holiday dreams come true. You can choose to request one Wish Star for one child, a handful, or host a “Giving Tree Site” and help fulfill dozens of wishes. This can be done either publicly with a listing on our website, or privately for your organization, friends, or just you and your family! Whatever you choose we appreciate your support! In all cases, please complete this form and submit by October 29 to request the following ornaments, which will be mailed out beginning in early November:

    • Wish Stars Ornaments to provide wishes for a specific child served by our programs
    • Snow Trip Ornaments to provide winter recreation activities for the children in our Residential Program
    • Gift Card Ornaments to purchase unfulfilled gifts or provide other holiday essentials for the families we serve
    • Donation Ornaments to provide financial support for the most urgent needs of the children and families we serve

Visit our Wish Stars FAQ for further information about our Wish Star Ornaments.

Spread holiday cheer to many under-served families by donating funds to cover food, decorations and more at a party hosted by one of our community programs. Email Todd.Koolakian@kidshome.org if you are interested and we will partner you with one of the SCH programs.
