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 that the child has personally chosen (approximately $225).
  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. Purchase items from our 2018 Holiday Wish List (below) comprised of the many items that our children choose from to create their personal wish lists.
  4. Donate gift cards from Walmart, Target, Ross, Meijer, Kohl’s, or Old Navy in $25 increments.

We ask that gifts be returned to Maryhurst on TBD specific dates. We can also make arrangements to pick up gifts and will offer extended hours closer to the return date.
