Holiday Wishes

Turning Wishes into Smiles

The goal of Holiday Wishes is to provide some sense of holiday normalcy for children in the care of CPS.  We want them to feel like every other child, at least for a moment, and enjoy their holiday break with gifts that are specific to their wishes. If you are interested in raising awareness for this program and need something to distribute to friends or colleagues, download our information flyer. 

Sponsor a Child

When you become a sponsor, you’ll receive a child’s name, age, clothing sizes, and wishes. You’ll purchase the gifts and then drop them off with us. Gifts must be dropped off by December 10th at our Holiday Wishes warehouse.

Start a holiday tradition of giving with your family and sponsor a child today!

Become an Ambassador

Do you have a group of friends who would like to serve as sponsors in our Holiday Wishes program? Being a Holiday Wishes Ambassador could be the perfect fit for you. Ambassadors serve as a liaison between sponsors and PFC staff. Once a group of sponsors has been formed, you’ll request the total number of children for the group, relay their wishes to your group and coordinate a drop-off with us. If your co-workers, family, or friends have been looking for a way to give back during the holidays, this is a great opportunity.

Make a Donation

Your valuable monetary donation will go toward the purchase of holiday gifts. A donation of $100 will fill all three wishes for one child. Thank you for adding some sparkle to a child's life this holiday season!

Host a General Gift Drive

Unable to sponsor a child? There are many other valuable ways to help, including general toy/gift donation. These toys will go into our general gift inventory and will fill the wishes of any child who didn’t get sponsored or came into the care of CPS during December. Each year, approximately 25% of the children we serve received these general gifts. Click here for gift ideas. You’ll coordinate your gift drop-off with us once you’ve made your purchase.
