One of the most well known organizations to donate too this holiday season is the Angel Tree. You will see trees with Angel ornaments on them located at the main office, Mall St. Matthews, Oxmoor Center, and Jefferson Mall. Pick out an ornament and return the items to the same location. Ideally, the Angel Tree is looking for one outfit and 2 or more toys.
CWF is a crisis center as well as emergency shelter for individuals, families, and communities affected by intimate partner violence and sexual assault. This holiday season, many families may not have access to purchasing Christmas gifts. Please consider donating to our downtown location to help those families have a happy holiday.
This program asks for donations of new gifts that will be organized into a mini-mall for families to choose gifts for their children. Over 500 families are invited downtown to make their own selections of gifts for their children. If your company would like to be a sponsor, St. Vincent De Paul will deliver a table tree top to your business with hearts containing the age and gender of a child in need.
Kosair Charities works to protect the health and well being of children by providing financial support for clinical services, research, pediatric healthcare and child advocacy. During this time of year, they have an annual holiday party for their kiddos. You can donate to help families and children have the Christmas they deserve at their location off Eastern Parkway.
Uspiritus works day and night providing a safe and healthy environment for children who’ve experienced abuse, neglect, mental illness or trauma. They have an onsite school, housing, and therapy services at their Goldsmith Lane location. This Christmas, many children will be in the care of Uspiritus and may not experience Christmas with their family. You can sponsor a child and give them the Christmas they hoped for.
Like Uspiritus, St. Joseph’s provides services for children who’ve been removed from their home for abuse and neglect. They provide residential treatment that includes therapy and adoption care off their Frankfort Avenue location. Until this day, there are a significant number of children waiting for their forever home. You can help them have an enjoyable holiday by donating.
