Hope for the Holidays

Sponsor a Child

Sponsor a Child Today Donate to Hope for the Holidays

Can you imagine not celebrating the holidays with your family?  For the more than 300 children who are living in foster care with CHS, this is a reality they face every day.  This holiday season, CHS is working hard to ensure all of the children in our care have reason to celebrate – and we need your help!

Your donation will help bring joy and delight to the children we serve. You can sponsor a child by yourself or with your family, faith group or colleagues.

There are several ways to sponsor a child:

  • Purchase items from a child’s personal wish list
  • Donate and volunteers will shop for you
  • Purchase gift cards (like Visa, Target, Wal-Mart or other general retailer) to help fulfill a child’s personal wish list

We suggest the following gift amounts, based upon the child’s age:

  • Infants (0-2)                      $75
  • Preschoolers (3-5)           $125
  • Elementary (6-12)           $150
  • Teenagers (13-21)            $175

Thank you for supporting CHS and the children we serve. Please submit your sponsor form to Children’s Home Society by Friday, October 28.
