THE CARE THEY DESERVE
Giving Children the Care They Deserve
Who We Are
Christmas for Kids is a magical event where local Portland, Oregon Metro area kids are selected by their Title One School counselors, due to extreme need, to join a volunteer shopper to check off a Christmas wishlist. Our focus is to provide basic clothing needs for the child and their immediate siblings.
A combination of donated funds, donated items (coats, books, hygiene items, etc.), vastly reduced prices, and volunteer contributions create a unique situation in our organization where, on average, over 95¢ of every dollar donated is spent on the child on the day of the event.
CHRISTMAS FOR KIDS 2021 IN PERSON EVENT CANCELLED
Our Christmas for Kids hearts couldn’t be fuller due to the outpouring of support from our incredible donors and volunteers.
The decision to cancel the 2021 Christmas for Kids event was a tough one, but a necessary one due to the safety and health of the children, volunteers, and Fred Meyer employees.
Although the in person event will not take place, our mission continues in 2021 to supply hundreds of area needy children with warm coats for the winter. The success of our program for over 35 years is due to your generous contributions to Christmas for Kids.
