Holiday Giving


Together, we give hope. Join us in brightening the lives of local children and families in need this holiday season.

Make a Gift

No gift is too small. Your gift helps local children and families overcome challenges to lead self-sufficient lives. All amounts are welcome and will help provide vital services that are directed to current and future needs. Your gift is tax-deductible. Donate today.

Hope for the Holidays

Each year, we receive hundreds of wish lists from children who often go without during the holiday. You can make a wish come true! Contact Carolyn Mitrovich at cmitrovich@csbcs.org for more information or make a donation of up to $50 per child you would like to sponsor via our online donation page.

Holiday Food Drives

Your organization, office or neighborhood can give collectively! Consider collecting canned food, granola bars, peanut butter, crackers, soups, and other non-perishables. These are items are needed throughout the year. Please contact Larissa Tabin. Thank you.

Blankets and Sheets

New families are entering our shelter each day. We are in high need of new sheets and twin size blankets. Thank you.

Teens for Teens

Teens in need are often overlooked during holiday toy drives. Consider involving your teen or a teen you know to help pick out gifts for other teens ages 13 to 18 years of age.


With a monthly cost of $100 to $120, diapers are an expense that many families struggle to afford. Help local families, military families, single parents and grandparents raising children to meet their little one’s basic needs.
