Holiday Giving and Most Needed Items for Family & Children’s Center

pexels-photo-37664Looking to give back for the holidays? You can make the holidays bright and futures even brighter by supporting Family & Children’s Center.

Every year we work with hundreds of struggling kids, families and individuals and have found that the holiday season only compounds their challenges. We seek donations to help meet their needs and bring a little bit of holiday cheer. For most of these individuals, the gifts they receive through our holiday giving program are the only gifts they will receive this year. We are so grateful for all of the support we receive from local individuals who help us make our holiday giving program a reality.

FCC thanks you for your previous support and involvement, and hopes you can help us help those who need it most over the holiday season.


Many families in our programs are in need of extra support during the holidays to purchase gifts for their families. They are struggling to make ends meet and your support can brighten their holidays.

Host a Giving Tree or Sponsor Wish Lists

You can support individual needs for people in our programs by purchasing wish list items for kids and adults. You can also host a Giving Tree by posting a Tree at your business and putting up tags of individual wish list items.
