“I usually get gifts that are necessities for the kids (like clothes and hygiene items), but receiving these gift cards gave me an opportunity to take the kids to the store and have them pick whatever they wanted. The kids were so excited, and it made their holiday really special. It was so wonderful to see the smiles on their faces as they walked out of the store!”
—Erin, JF&CS client

The JF&CS Holiday Gift Card Drive enables parents who are struggling to make ends meet to choose and purchase gifts for their children for the holidays. All parents want to have the experience of selecting a gift they know their children will love.

With your support, JF&CS will provide gift cards for more than 500 children this year. Let’s come together as a community to help parents who are struggling just to pay the rent and keep the heat and electricity on.

There are two ways you can help:

  • Donate Target gift cards in $25 increments. Gift cards should be mailed to Kathy Arnold, Center for Basic Needs Assistance, Jewish Family & Children’s Service, 1430 Main St., Waltham, MA 02451.
  • Leave the shopping to us! Make an online donation in $25 increments.

Please make your donation by Dec. 6.

Feel free to contact Kathy at karnold@jfcsboston.org with any questions.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!
