2023 Holiday Gift Drive

Bring a smile to the face of a Maryhurst child this Holiday season! You can help us by participating in our Holiday Gift Drive. This is a perfect opportunity for individuals, friends, family, church, neighborhoods, or places of employment.

This year we have several options:

  1. Fulfill one or more children’s full, individualized wish lists — this list will consist of 6 gifts (approximately $250) or 3 gifts (approximately $125) that the child has personally chosen.
  2. We can create gift tags in $25, $40, and $60 dollar range. Each gift tag will list the child’s name, age, and one item a child has picked in the dollar range you choose.
  3. Donate gift cards from Walmart, Target, Amazon, Meijer, Kohl’s, or Old Navy in $25 increments.

Wish lists will arrive via email the week of November 6th, and gift tags will be mailed out upon request.
