The holidays can be such a magical and joyous time for a child. Help us make sure that the children and families we serve get to have that magical experience they so deserve by supporting our annual Holiday Shop.

From December 9th – 13th our campus will turn into the North Pole and nearly 600 parents will shop free of charge for their children from a wide-array of new, donated items displayed in a festive holiday atmosphere. The gifts are then wrapped to take home and put under the tree!

The event is just one week away and we could use your help to make it a success. Consider donating the following items:

  • New gifts (of around $25 value) appropriate for children from infants to teenagers
  • $25 grocery gift cards
  • Baby items – diapers, wipes, blankets, etc.
  • Hats and gloves for all sizes and genders
  • Full sized hygiene items

All gifts should be unwrapped, placed in a gift bag, and delivered to The Children’s Center to:

Jon Carolin

The Children’s Center
79 Alexandrine West
Detroit, MI 48201
Building 90

Donations are most needed by December 9th but will be accepted throughout December. Contact Jon Carolin at with any questions.

Thank YOU to those who have already so graciously gifted, donated, and volunteered. We could not do this without you.
