Support Christmas House

COVID-19 UPDATE:  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!

Once again, we find ourselves in a difficult situation, being committed to getting toys, coats, and books into the hands of local school children in need, but also being concerned for the safety of our volunteers and participants. While we will miss the energy, excitement, and crowds of the indoor Christmas House event, we feel it is best for all involved to focus our efforts on creating an enjoyable outdoor Christmas House 2021 Drive-thru for one more year.  

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.


Make a toy or book donation


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


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!

2021 UPDATE: Instead of collecting toys, maybe collect donations from your friend or co-worker group.

Purchase toys from our Amazon Wish List

Please also shop using Amazon Smile and selecting  Christmas House Inc. as the recipient of your donations. Directions here.
