Help Support DABSJ's Annual Holiday Gift Drive!
Everyone deserves a childhood – but the children who come to D.A. Blodgett - St. John’s have faced things like trauma, abuse, neglect, and other challenges. Like any other children, what they need most is to feel safe and loved. That need is sometimes deepest during the holidays.
You can help give them the childhood they deserve – to experience the warmth and wonder of the season, the simple joy of a gift picked just for them. The DABSJ Holiday Gift Drive is your chance to provide that magic.
Gifts will be distributed to over 300 kids in our counseling, foster care, adoption, mentoring, and residential programs.
Four Ways to Give Back
Wishlists - UPDATE: Thanks to your amazing support, all wishlists have been claimed! You can still contribute general toys and gifts or make a monetary donation for children who do not have wishlists. Thank you for making the holiday season bright for our children and families!
Children make a list, and you get to shop it! Personally shop for gifts for kids. Donors, families, or groups can sign up for as many Wishlists as they would like and then will receive a shopping list for each individual child.
Give a monetary donation - Not able to shop but still want to support? You can also give a monetary donation of any amount to the Holiday Gift Drive.
Donate general toys and gifts - Collect toys and gifts of your choice and drop them off for kids that don't have Wishlists. Please contact Celeste Blakely for more details at gro.jsbad@ylekalbc.
Volunteer - If you're interested in volunteering for the gift drive please contact Celeste Blakely at gro.jsbad@ylekalbc.
