How to Donate

Thank you for your interest in making a monetary donation to the Christmas Connection Program. Through your generous donation, Christmas Connection is able to assist vulnerable families within the Big Bend region, with critical support during the Christmas holiday (by meeting families’ basic needs, such as: food, clothing, linens, toiletries and gifts). But Christmas Connection doesn't stop there! Funds raised during the holiday season are used throughout the year to assist families with paying a rent and/or utility bill and with learning how to manage their finances, in an effort to prevent homelessness. It is through your generous donation that vulnerable children, their parents and/or guardians are warm and fed.

If you’d like for your donation to go directly towards helping a specific Christmas Connection family/case that you have read about in the local newspaper or have heard about in the local news, please let our office know by identifying the family name or case number on the check and mail it to P.O. Box 20165, Tallahassee, FL 32316. Catholic Charities’ Christmas Connection Program is happy to apply your donation directly to a specific family’s “case”, unless the family’s needs have already been met by another generous donor. Then in this situation, your donation will go to help another family experiencing similar circumstances.
