Santa Claus is very jolly as he’s preparing his sleigh of gifts for The Children’s Home! However, both Santa and The Children’s Home need your help to make Christmas Day and our annual Christmas Event (private event) special occasions for those we serve – our families and children! We have approximately 140 children in our Foster Care program and an additional 40 youth and families in our TLP/ILP and Family Housing programs.

There are two great options for you to help make this a wonderful Christmas for our children and families. You can donate gifts from our Christmas Wish List OR contact The Children’s Home Christmas Coordinator to sponsor a child and/or family.

Please deliver your tax-deductible gifts to The United Methodist Children’s Home Tucker office on or by Tuesday, December 11th. Delivery hours are  Monday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Please ensure donated gifts are new and unwrapped for the security and enjoyment of the families and children we serve. Also, please place all gift cards inside envelopes, along with the accompanying receipts (and separate the gift cards from unwrapped gifts).

Passes, Tickets, Memberships

This year, please consider a gift that may ignite a budding passion or career! The families and children we serve are often excluded from activities they cannot afford. For example, tickets to an Atlanta Hawks or Silverbacks game, the movie theater, Zoo Atlanta, or the Georgia Aquarium allow them to experience events they may never otherwise experience without your help. Finally, please share this information with your neighbors, friends, and congregations. Your generosity and thoughtfulness go a long way with our families.
