Volunteer to help

We can’t do this alone. We need volunteers every year to help collect gifts from hosts, manage our Elf Bazaar, and check in our recipient families. 


We anonymously connect generous hosts with local families in need 

We believe that everyone should be able to have a joyful holiday season. We help local families with children in the McFarland, Oregon and Stoughton school districts share in the joy of the holiday season by anonymously connecting them with generous hosts. The hosts provide gifts and other necessities for the children in time for the holiday season.

Gifts for the children

Core to our program, Hosts buy gifts for our applicant families. Hosts are provided a wish list from our familes and are asked to buy each child a gift.

Our families are thankful for our hosts

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our families say:

The amount of gratitude can hardly be enough to describe the joy you helping hand has done for our family this year. As a struggling single mom you are helping bring my son extra joy on such a glorious time of year. 

I am so thankful for the host a family program. My family has been the recipients of gifts in the past and everything has been enjoyed and well loved.

I’m very grateful for programs like this because it makes the holidays extra special when you can give your family something with help being offered, because you can’t afford to do so on your own.
