Important things to know!

Holiday gifts are not guaranteed.

If you are a caseworker please submit your request under the foster parents name.

Please only submit one form per family which will allow you to make requests for all of the children in foster care that reside in your home. If you have more than three children in foster care, please complete registration a second time.

This year, we are unable to serve biological and adopted children.

Your pick up date and time will be confirmed via email, and you will be required to confirm your appointment in order to receive gifts.
