How it Works
Kids chosen from Portland area Title I schools that have been identified as highly in need by their teachers and counselors, are selected to go Christmas shopping at the Hollywood Fred Meyer. With their Christmas list in hand (mostly consisting of basic needs like a winter coat and hygiene products), each kid is paired with a caring volunteer like YOU to shop with them.
The impact that a few hours of your time can have on these kids (AND their families) is immeasurable. Shopping with a kid gives a touching first hand perspective on the true meaning of Christmas.
The stories we can, and do, share from these shopping experiences are eye-opening and inspiring. If you are not already ready to volunteer please read some of our past stories here. Hopefully next year someone else will decide to join us based on your story!
We, at Christmas for Kids, thank you for joining us for this very special time.
