How It Works

Every December, Union Settlement collects gifts for children ages 2-13 in our Early Childhood Education, Youth Services and Mental Health programs.

Through the generous donations of corporate partners and individuals, we were able to provide over 1,500 gifts that helped make the holiday season a little brighter last year.

This year, the number of children in our programs has increased, and our goal for 2017 is to ensure each child receives a gift from us.

We rely entirely on support from volunteers and corporations to make the gift drive possible.

Interested? There are different ways you can show your support.

    • 1. You can host a gift drive in your office, school, or place of worship.
    • 2. You can order from our customized Amazon Wish List (coming soon).
    • 3. You can make a donation.
