The organization is in full swing for this year’s “Christmas for Kids” campaign, their annual effort to put Christmas gifts under the trees of the thousands of children in their care.

“Christmas for Kids” is one of Saint Francis’ most popular programs, and it  continues to grow each year in the number of community partners who join, in the number of donations they receive, and in the number of children the program serves.

“Christmas for Kids” connects groups and individuals with children who are often times without family traditions over the holidays. The goals is to create a memory that’s a positive memory.

According to St. Francis, some find forever families through adoption and again developing new traditions. The gift is something that’s a special memory and it’s coming from some people who care about you.”
