It’s about that time again – the holidays. For many of our families that means worrying about how to afford food and gifts to make the holiday special.

Our Holiday Shop offers a beautiful opportunity for these families. At the Holiday Shop, parents and guardians can shop for holiday gifts, new socks and underwear and stocking stuffers for each child in their family. We also provide families with a special blanket and holiday meal gift card. All free of charge.

Every year, donors like you help our children and families by stocking our Holiday Shop with the items our families so desperately need. For example, this year, the Pope Benedict XVI All Girls Sports Tournament, is contributing by making blankets. Each year, under Stacy LeVigne’s leadership, children from the tournament typically create anywhere between 75-85 blankets to donate to our Holiday Shop.

How you can participate

Consider holding a gift drive, joining us as a sponsor or donating new unwrapped items from our wish list. You can even consider team-building activities like making blankets or assembling hygiene kits. For more information, contact Jon Carolin at 313.262.0939 or
