Help Center for Children and Families (CCFI) provide gifts for the hundreds of children and families they serve by participating in our "Holiday Wishes” gift drive. Through this drive, you can make a big difference in someone’s life. Picture the joy on a child's face as he opens a present and his wish actually comes true. Imagine the sense of relief when a single mother struggling to make ends meet realizes she will have something to give her kids this year. Feel the hope of a teenager who receives a special gift, letting him know he was not forgotten, someone really does care.
Why do we need your help?
We want to make sure every child we serve has a gift to open and every family we serve is provided with much-needed essentials. In some circumstances, children we serve will spend their holiday in foster care or group homes and many of the families in our community – based programs are struggling to make ends meet. We do everything we can to make this time of year as joyous as possible for those who may be having difficulties.
How can I help?
Individuals, families or civic organizations can help support a child(ren) by "adopting" their holiday wish list. We are also in need of gift cards (see below) for shoes and clothing. You can also bring new and unwrapped items by our office to be included in a child's gift bag - i.e. mittens, toys, books, etc. For more information about adopting a wish list, please contact Paige Uhr at firstname.lastname@example.org or (405) 364-1420.
Preferred stores for gift card donations:
Sooner Mall Old Navy Sears
Babies R Us Toys R Us Kohl’s
JC Penney Target TJ Maxx
Ross Wal-Mart Payless Shoes
