Christmas Gift Drive

Commitment: One-time serve
Perfect for: Families, individuals
When: Happening in December


Every Christmas season, children in need are given gifts—some of which have a parent in prison, some of them are in Whiz Kids, and other children in the area. People from our Crossroads communities select a gift tag from a tree that has a specific gift to buy, wrap the gifts, and deliver them.

You may notice that Christmas Gift Drive seems to be scaled back this year as the program is being re-evaluated in how it serves the community. There are still a number of opportunities to serve, just not like past years.

Below are the sites that are participating this year or organizations that they’ll be supporting. If your site isn’t listed and you have any questions, please connect with our team at communitycare@crossroads.net.
