Holiday Gift Drive 2018

Posted on November 2nd, 2018

It’s time for Child Advocates Holiday Gift Drive!

Help us make the holidays a little brighter for foster children! Our holiday gift drive provides gifts to children in foster care who might otherwise be without presents this year.

Our goal is to provide more than 1,000 Indianapolis foster children with gifts this holiday season!


Ways You Can Help


  1. Make a donationWant to bring some holiday cheer to an abused child but don’t have time to deal with the logistics? Let us take care of it for you! Your online contribution or check mailed to Child Advocates (please designate Holiday Gift Drive on check) will go straight to Santa’s Workshop, where Santa’s elves will buy and distribute gifts for you!


  1. Sponsor a child (or multiple children) Sponsoring a child’s Wish List is an opportunity for you, your family and/or your company to provide gifts to one or more of these very deserving children. The child (or his/her caregiver) completes a Wish List registration form detailing items the child would like. As a sponsor, you will receive the Wish List form from Child Advocates and then shop for “your” child or children. Since the children we serve range in age from newborn to 18 years, the requested gifts are child- and age-specific. We ask that a minimum of three gifts be purchased for each child (typically one “big” item and at least two “smaller” items). You will bring your child’s gifts, in a bag, to our warehouse on the designated sponsor drop-off days with the Wish List Form attached, where they will be sorted and prepared for delivery in time for Christmas.
