Thanks to the incredible generosity of our Central IN community, over 1000 children on our tree this year were sponsored, and the rest were covered by monetary donations.The tree is closed now, but we’re still accepting monetary donations. Click the Donate button to give.
YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS
Here are just a few stories of how Hope for the Holidays donors spread holiday joy.
“Thank you for making our family Christmas wonderful. All I could see that day were big smiles on my little siblings. My little sister was so excited about Santa, and it has been a very long time since I had fun.” – Rosie
“Giving back is important to us. Each year we select kids from the tree and shop as a team-building experience. We have an internal contest to see which department can come up with the most creative gift tag.” – Delivra.com
Each year Douglas MacArthur Elementary School holds a toy drive and the winning class gets to come to Children’s Bureau to deliver their toys. They experience the joy of giving, and CB kids have a brighter holiday!
“So many of the kids we serve never believed they would ever be going to college. It’s a truly humbling experience to see their faces when they show me their college acceptance letters. They start to realize at that point, that they have value and they can be more than just a ‘foster care kid’.”
