Support Christmas House
Sadly, due to COVID-19, Christmas House did not place Wish Trees around town or collect toy donations last year, but THE EVENT WAS STILL A SUCCESS! This was thanks to the tremendous outpouring of donations from the community and local businesses who rallied behind our families in need. Thank you so much for your continued support!
In place of toys again this year, we will be giving away gift cards for each eligible child in each participating family household. Of course, we will continue to also distribute new books and a new coat to each child, as well. Your support is needed now more than ever so we can meet this demand. Thank you!
Make a monetary donation
It takes a tremendous budget to procure the thousands of toys, books, coats, and bikes it takes to make Christmas House the incredible event it is.
Please consider an a one-time or recurring annual donation online or by check to PO Box 3543, Chapel Hill, NC 27515.
Don't forget to ask if your employer has a Corporate Matching Giving Fund.
Donate a book or toy
Christmas House donors and volunteers collect, purchase, and sort thousands of new toys, books, and coats every year.
You can drop off a new, unwrapped gift at any one of our community Wish Trees located around town.
Host an office Wish Tree
A Wish Tree is a festive holiday tree decorated with bear ornaments that describe the age of a child in need. Donors select a bear ornament, purchase a new book or toy, leave in the collection box by the tree.
Be one of the many local businesses hosting a community Wish Tree. You can find them in places like, Flyleaf Bookstore, Open Eye Cafe, Carr Mill Mall, University Place, and many more. Contact us for more details.
Host a home or office Toy Drive
FUN, MORE INVOLVED EFFORT
What better way to enjoy time during the holidays with family, friends, and co-workers than by collecting toys for children in need. It's a win-win for everyone!
Purchase toys from our Amazon Wish List
FUN, MINIMAL EFFORT
It couldn't be any easier to shop for Christmas House donations than selecting a toy or two from our soon to be shared Amazon Wish List. This is a carefully and thoughtfully curated list of toys and books based specifically on the ages and numbers of children we serve.
