Holiday Gift Drive

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, and residential programs.

Four Ways to Give Back


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 & Gifts

Collect toys and gifts of your choice and drop them off for kids that don’t have Wishlists. Please contact


If you’re interested in volunteering for the gift drive please contact

Give Them The Gift Of Hope.

DABSJ is inclusive and welcoming – from our team members, to the children we serve, to the families we license as foster parents. You could play a part in providing homes and hope for children who need a place to be themselves.
