You can be the reason this season is merry.

The holiday season is a challenging one for children who do not have the support of family. You can be the one to make sure a child receives holiday gifts and a message of care and support this December. Your online monetary donation is the best, most effective way for you to get holiday gifts to a child in need. With your online donation, staff who know the children will select and wrap gifts, based on the child's size, style, interests, and likes. 

With your online gift you will send a powerful message of care and support. When a child opens a special gift - thanks to your online donation - they will know that there is someone who cares about their well-being and happiness.

It's easy to donate online, and 100% of your online monetary gift will go towards gifts for a child. 

Say you will support a child through the Holiday Gift Project! Make your gift of $10, $20, or $50+ today.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who receives the holiday gifts?
Many New Jersey families are struggling to meet basic needs these days, and the added costs during the holiday season make it overwhelming for single parents and those families who are living at or below the poverty line despite full-time employment. When you make an online donation, children and families who are currently being served by Center For Family Services receive presents. This includes children living in our group homes and emergency shelters, as well as families receiving services.100% of your online donation will be used to purchase holiday gifts for children, teens, and young adults.

Should I wrap the present(s) I buy?
The best way to provide holiday gifts for a child in need is through a monetary donation.  If you do provide gift items, please provide unwrapped gifts. When we receive wrapped gifts, we will need to unwrap them in order to be sure what each child is receiving and that it is age or size or developmentally appropriate. However, gifts of wrapping paper and gift bags are always appreciated.

What kinds of items are needed most? Which age group?
The best and most efficient way to get holiday gifts to a child in need is through your monetary donation. 

Can I meet the kids or deliver gift(s) directly to them?
In order to protect the safety and confidentiality of the children in our care, there is not an opportunity to meet the children or deliver gifts directly to the kids in our care. Many of the children in our care have experienced trauma, abuse, and neglect. The holidays are often a very difficult time of year, and our trained staff are prepared to provide the best possible care. Holiday activities take place in all of our caring homes and your monetary donation will be the reason a child receives gifts and a message of care and support. 

Will I get a personal thank you for my gift? 
All donors will receive a thank you letter from Center For Family Services. Due to privacy and confidentiality, you will not receive a personal thank you from a child/family.  All gifts go to children and families served through one of our programs. If you complete a Donation Receipt Form and mail it to One Alpha Avenue, Voorhees NJ 08043, you will receive a thank you from Center For Family Services.

Still have questions?
Please contact us at Holiday Gift Project with any questions. We will do our best to respond quickly. Due to the very busy holiday season at Center For Family Services, it may take a few days for us to respond. We will make every effort to get back to you as quickly as possible.
