Christmas Gifts

Every year, Christmas gifts for children (up to age 17) are available to those receiving food boxes. Gifts are distributed at St. Joseph Catholic Church at 400 S. Andresen Road. 

In 2018, through the generosity of donors who participated in multiple local toy drives, we distributed gifts to 1368 children in 471 families. Many, many thanks to Madeline's Helpful Heart, all those who donated to the KGW and KPTV toy drives, as well as the parishioners of the Catholic churches who make up our conference, Our Lady of Lourdes, Holy Redeemer, St. Joseph, and The Proto-Cathedral of St. James the Greater. There were also families and individuals who supported this program with gifts of time and toys. Those donations made such a positive impact on local families as they celebrated the birth of Jesus!
