Holiday Gift Project

You can make this the merriest season of all - you can be the reason a child feels loved this holiday season. Donate a gift or sponsor a child today.

Each year, because of the involvment of community partners like you, over 2,000 children and teens being cared for by Center For Family Services receive brand new holiday gifts through our Holiday Gift Project, ensuring they have an inspired and joyful holiday.

Without your help many of these children and teens, some of whom may not be able to spend the holidays with their families, would receive no gifts at all.  

By participating in our Holiday Gift Project you truly have the opportunity to make a positive difference in a child's life that will continue throughout the year.  

We wouldn't be able to do what we do without you. Our Holiday Gift Project kicks off November 2017!

Ways to Give

Sponsor a Child or Children

Our online Holiday Wish Center will open in November 2017. The Holiday Wish Center will give you the chance to sponsor a local child or children in our care. If you or your company is interested in sponsoring youth living at one of our 14 safe homes throughout South Jersey please contact Emily Flemming to learn more about this opportunity.

Gift Cards

Gift Cards are a great way to make the holidays brighter for the teens and families served by Center For Family Services. Gift card donations give teens in our safe housing programs the opportunity to shop for their own clothing - which boosts self-esteem - or to participate in activities like movies, bowling, and food outings - which helps to open doors to new opportunities and helps to create positive memories.

Please deliver or mail all gift cards to:

Center For Family Services
Attn: Development Dept.
584 Benson Street
Camden, NJ 09103
