Christmas 2015 Wish List

The holidays are right around the corner and our clients don’t have ability to buy gifts on their own. We need your help to make Christmas a special time for those we serve! We have approximately 80 children in our foster care program and another 70 residents on our campus.


We have two options for you to help make this a wonderful holiday for our children and families. You can donate from our general Wish List below OR contact our Christmas Coordinator to sponsor a child over age 8 or a family living on our campus.


All gifts are due to the United Methodist Children’s Home offices by Monday, Dec. 7.  Donations can be delivered to our main office Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. or Sunday, Dec. 6, from 1-5 p.m. Please only donate new items.
