The Gift of Christmas

At CityKidz, the Gift of Christmas is our expression of faith, hope, and love through thoughtful presents and a Christmas celebration for all the children in our CityKidz community.

About the Gift of Christmas:

The Gift of Christmas is more than presents under the tree, it’s a chance for us to tell the most vulnerable children in our community that they are loved, that they matter and that someone is thinking of them.

Donate a Toy

CityKidz accepts new, unwrapped toys for children ages 0 to 12.
Our Toy Drive runs until Tuesday, December 22nd at noon. However, we encourage you drop off your gifts as early as possible to help give our staff time to select, wrap, and deliver the perfect gift to every child on our list in time for Christmas.
