1) Fill out the below form.
2) Have children between the ages of 2-13.

Although we wish that we could help every single family, we have a limited number of families that we can assist with Christmas gifts this year. Please fill out the form below and you will be contacted within the next few days to set an appointment for you to pick-up your gifts. Pick-up will be between December 18 - 22, 2020.
