Thank you for your interest in the 2023 Celebration of Giving! For more than 75 years, Catholic Charities has been proud to work with our generous donors and community partners to bring happiness to children and families each Christmas season. With your help, we can add joy to holiday celebrations for families who are truly in need. 

Ways you can help:

  • Shop the CELEBRATION OF GIVING  online registries today! 

  • Sponsor a toy drive with your family, friends, coworkers, fellow parishioners, or other group. Collect new, unwrapped toys and donate them to the Celebration of Giving. See the link above for Drop Off dates/times. 

  • Sponsor a shopping spree at a local toy store, with your company or group. We provide the wish list, and you provide the funds and the shoppers. 

  • Join our crew of elves who sort and distribute the amazing gifts that are donated.
