Toys for Tots partners with BabiesRUs, ToysRUs, Hasbro Toys, and Scholastic to make toy donations to children.


Most campaigns give toys and gifts to children up to age 12, but in many local communities, local gift drives the age limit may be extended to 14-16.

They accept donations of new, unwrapped toys between October and December. You can apply online to request free Christmas toys for your child. If you want to receive a new toy for your child, Register for Help Here.

The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army charity program is best recognized by the faithful volunteer bell-ringers standing by the red kettle each Christmas season. The Salvation Army supports a nationwide drive to give gifts and toys to low-income families and help with bills.

Parents must register each year so that their child is assigned a tag and their Christmas wish is hung on trees located outside department stores during the Christmas season. The Salvation also helps throughout the year by providing food, affordable housing, job training and more.

Donations are given by generous folks, who choose a child’s name and purchase a toy for that child. You can register your child to receive toys, games, or clothing through your local Corps Community Center. If you go to this site, you can enter your town and state and find the Salvation Army nearest you, or call 1(800) 728-7825.

Angel Tree and Free Toys for Christmas

Angel Tree, is a program run through thousands of churches by Prison Fellowship that reaches out to the children of inmates and their families. You can help a child or family by donating to Angel Tree Program.

The Christmas charity is sponsored by the Salvation Army and provides Christmas toys for children and gifts for teens and seniors and families in need. This program is run by the generous donations from groups, organizations, and caring people like you!. Your donations help these precious children each year!

How You can Participate in Angel Tree

If your organization would like to host an Angel, go online to the corporate site and fill out a registration form and return it before October 17. Dates will vary in some states. Specify how many people your organization would like to help and attend a training.

You will receive a kit, including Angel’s tags for your tree. Decorate your tree appropriately for Christmas with lots of Angels, and advertise the event by e-mails, posters and lunch room bulletin boards. You can choose to adopt an Angel to help this Christmas. They can also use your help as a volunteer to work the Secret Santa Warehouse.

JCPenny

JCPenny is a great supporter of the Angel Tree Program. They have made it easy to make the online donation process to an angel simpler. At their site, you can create a giving group for your job, group or organization to adopt a group for Christmas giving to seniors, teen and, of course, children.

You can also locate a group or individual you have chosen to help with a donation. When purchasing a gift for Angel Tree from the site, you get free shipping. December 9th is the last day to donate a gift to an angel!

Angel Tree accepts new toy donations through toy drives from, local, churches and private groups. Toys are then distributed to children in needy and low-income families. They help families all year long, not just at Christmas, but they do also give Christmas gifts. To receive toys and gifts for children, the incarcerated parent must fill out an application with the prison chaplain in July. For more info.1-800-206-9764

The Make-a-Wish Foundation

Though Make-a-Wish Foundation is not typically a Christmas charity, it will fulfill the wish of any terminally sick child or child with a life-threatening disease. The child must be over the age of 2 1/2 and not older than 18 years old.

Anyone applying for a wish will need to have the child’s condition verified by their physician. If you want to help a sick child have a great Christmas, contact.



Also, find out how to get financial assistance for your family

How to Apply for Christmas Help

If you are looking for a charity to help this Christmas, you can sign up with one of the Salvation Army registration locations in your city. In order to be eligible to receive the help, you must meet the federal qualifications and minimum poverty guidelines.

You will need to bring proof of your financial standing as well as documentation from the Department of Social Services if you are received assistance. They help children up to the age of 12 years and the elderly from 62 and up.

If you have registered to become an Angel, you name, age, sex, clothing, and shoe sizes will be placed on a tag and hung on an Angel Tree located in a mall, company, church or organization. Those who want to participate will choose a tag from the tree, purchase the gifts and return them to the Salvation Army to sort and distribute to the Angels.

If you Need Help with Food for Christmas

Maybe if you didn’t have to buy food, you’d have a little left over to buy some presents. Toys are not much fun when you don’t have anything to eat. The Feeding America nationwide network of food banks distributes more than three billion meals each year to communities throughout the United States.

Contact the local Department of Social Services to request a list of food banks in your community. Contact your local food bank to find food or to help solve hunger in your community. G Check out How to get Help with Utility Bills

    Hello my name is Talau Hansen Fonua. I have been looking for a job for the longest time. My husband is working part time at the moment and we have 4 beautiful handsome boys. Which Christmas this year is going to be hard. That is “WHY” I turn to you all for help if that’s possible. We would like help for Christmas for our boys. The oldest is 15, going on 16 next year. The next one is 12 going on 13 in November and the third one is 11 going on 12 next year and the youngest is 4 going on 5 next year. We both wanted our boys to be happy on Christmas and seeing their faces on Christmas morning that is all we want for them. So please I am asking as a mother if you can help me with this wish for Christmas it would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    Hello Kathneen, the assistance programs for toys are for very low-income families living below the US Government poverty guidelines. You can not get toys, solely because the store is too far from home. If you qualify as disadvantaged, please contact the organizations below to register for help.

    Hello Tanya. I do not know if you have applied for disability from the Armed Services. If not, please look into that right away. Depending on your disability you can get up to 100% disability for emotional and physical injuries. Christmas toys are for the youngest children of course. You may be able to get help with the older children, but must contact the agencies to find out what they offer. Like Make a Wish Foundation, helps very sick children. Call the organization in the posts below for help. Good Luck and thank you for your Service to this Country.

Every year Christmas is filled with gifts and this year I have nothing I wasn’t able to work due to my disability and things got really bad.

  137. Jennifer Pizana

    I sure do understand that about pride. It is humbling experience to be homeless for me. I recently became guardian of my two young granddaughters. We are getting to know each other as they have always lived three states away. Since they came to live with me I lost my room I was renting and have been staying here and there. They are in shool so sometimes I have to drive a ways to get them there everyday. I have applied for homeless and am on many waiting lists. All I wish is a place of our own for Christmas. I would love to give them stability and to know what it is like to have a home. They have such a hard time being away from their family.
    If anyone knows of a place that will take us at a reasonable price please let me know.
    Wishing everyone joy this Christmas.
