2016 Food Basket Drive

December 4, 2017



October 2, 2013

Welcome to our website!  We are hoping that you will help support us during this holiday season.  We understand that there are many excellent charities asking for your assistance.  Here are a few reasons why we are hoping you will contribute to ours.

  1. We are local.  We help needy families in New Jersey and New York.  We deliver gifts and food baskets to hospitals, schools and social agencies who in turn distribute them directly to children and their families.
  2. We are a grass-roots organization.  Our overhead is extremely low, which means that virtually everything we receive is passed on to those in need.  Our organizational expenses include mainly our mailing and post office box rental costs.
  3. We are a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization that assists people of all denominations during the holiday season.  We do not exclude anyone based on religious affiliation.
  4. We need your help.  We rely on sponsors to buy gifts for children.  We also solicit food baskets for delivery near Christmas.  If you would like to help us, but lack the time or transportation to shop, we also welcome monetary donations.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our site.  If you have any questions, just ask!

Make the 2012 holidays happier for a child

If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children.  ~Mahatma Gandhi

One person can make a difference!

We are looking for volunteers to make the holidays happier for children and families in need.  Please visit the pages on our site to find out how you can help.  A few dollars or a few hours of your time could make all the difference to an underprivileged child this holiday season.

We bring joy to children over the holidays.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

In 1991, two social workers answered letters to Santa Claus (found in the New York City post office) from the children of four needy families, making their Christmas wishes come true.  Since then, Christmas is for Children has supported nearly tens of thousands of underprivileged children dealing with poverty, AIDS, domestic violence and substance-abusing parents.  What makes Christmas is for Children unique is our approach to bestowing charity so that our beneficiaries retain their dignity, witnessing the true spirit of Christmas and the very best of humanity.
