Shop for a Gift

No time to shop? Let us do the shopping for you!

We believe that income levels should not interfere with what it means to be young. We are collecting thousands of specific wishes for our 271 local social service partners. Sadly, one in five Bay Area children is currently living below the poverty line. Dealing with that reality during the holiday season, a time typically reserved for joy, is especially disheartening for the children. You can give a child that moment of excitement and joy as they open their wished for gift. Will you join us and become an elf today?

Help in Other Ways:
