Hope For The Holidays

A Season of Hope
The winter and holiday season, a time of warmth and joy for many, becomes an even more trying period for the children and families we support. Their critical needs intensify during this season, making your generosity all the more vital. Your contribution can be the defining factor between a season filled with despair and one overflowing with hope.

With our Hope for the Holidays Campaign, we earnestly seek to raise $25,000 in urgently needed funds to provide critical assistance to children and families in need.

As you gather with loved ones this season, please spare a thought for those who are struggling to meet their basic needs. Children’s Place is a lifeline for these families, providing essential services like health care, education, shelter and food. Your support will give a child the hope they need this season.
