Celebrate the Holidays and Help A Child’s Place Students and Families

Many of our 2016 Holiday opportunities are in full swing. Please read below for al by making a donation to our Student, Family and Holiday Sponsorship program which provides support to our students throughout the holiday break and the remainder of the school year. Thank you for your interest and support!


1. Holiday Central Volunteer

We’re in need of additional Holiday Central volunteers! To ensure our students receive all of their gift items, we need your help! Our staff will need assistance with tasks such as accepting sponsor donations, sorting gift packages, organizing materials to send home with families, and preparing gifts for family pick-up. 
We invite you to volunteer as an individual or group to assist us with Holiday Central operations from December 7 to December 13. Each volunteer shift can hold up to 10 or 12 individuals and are filled on a first-come first-served basis. Holiday Central will occur at the A Child’s Place main office at 601 E. 5th Street, Suite 230.
Sign-up to Volunteer at Holiday Central here!  

2. Feed a Family

Provide a grocery store gift card for A Child’s Place families being sponsored by one of our community partners for the holidays. Suggested donation amount is $30 per family and can be made by bringing or mailing physical grocery store gift cards to our main office located at 601 E. 5th Street, Suite 230, Charlotte, NC 28202. Please mail or bring physical grocery store gift cards to our main office located by Friday, December 2nd, 2016.  

3. Holiday Sponsorship

Sponsors receive information for a specific family that includes age, gender, and wish-lists for each child and are asked to provide the following:
– $30 grocery store gift card for the family (Food Lion preferred)
– 2 wish-list items per child (items range in price from $10-$50 each) 

4. Give Back Gift Shops

Host a shopping experience at one of our schools to give students a unique opportunity to experience the joys of giving by allowing them to select holiday gifts for their parents or caregivers. For this opportunity, your volunteer group will: 
1. Collect a variety of small gifts in a $5-$10 price range for parents.
2. Set-up the “shop” at one of our 15 partner CMS locations.
3. Take students through the shop to select gifts for their parents followed by gift wrapping and card making.
 If you are unable to participate in one of our Holiday Programs this year, we encourage you to contribute to the “Student, Family and Holiday Sponsorship fund which will provide continued support to our families during the holidays and in the months following.
