Share the Joy

Give tidings of comfort and joy to families this holiday season!

Give the Gift of Hope for the Holidays

Registration Is Open!

Share the Joy is back! With various gift giving options, we are able to encourage donors of all giving levels to support our clients this holiday season.

2023 Improvements to the Program

  • Wishlist: All client wishlists are asking for a total of 3 gifts this year, and we ask that all 3 items be fulfilled by generous donors like you!
  • Gift Drop Off: All wishlist gifts will be delivered to one central location this year. This is to make it easier for donors to drop gifts off, with a location that has a spacious, free parking lot, where staff and volunteers will help unload cars. (Note: Gifts For Francis Friends will still ask for gifts to be delivered to our men’s shelter).

Instructions for Selecting a Wishlist

  • You can filter by “family size” if you’d like. Select wishlist(s) & complete registration
  • The selected wishlist(s) will be sent to you via a confirmation email, along with specific drop-off location instructions.
  • We ask that ALL gifts be dropped off to our designated location between December 4th-8th. This information will be included in your confirmation email.
  • Please do not wrap your gifts. Your confirmation email will include a family ID code. Please clearly label your gifts with this code when dropping off.
