To make your shopping even safer and easier, please shop from our AMAZON WISH LIST.  All gifts purchased from the AMAZON WISH LIST can be shipped directly to the Christmas Connection office.


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 donations that vulnerable children, their parents and/or guardians are warm and fed. 

You can mail your donations directly to:

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.
