Every year, CHRIS 180 provides holiday gifts to clients in need. From youth in foster care to children receiving counseling to families transitioning out of homelessness, we make sure that every client celebrates the holidays with gifts of their own. This year, our usual holiday gift donation events have been cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic-- but our clients still need us.

Will you help make the holidays special for CHRIS 180's clients?

Donations to our Giving Tuesday campaign will ensure that our clients receive gifts for the holidays. And that's not all-- for Giving Tuesday on December 1, your donations will have DOUBLE the impact. Thanks to J.D. Kellum, every gift up to $25,000 given on this page by midnight on December 1 will be matched.

Now is the time to give back by marshaling support from the people in your community. Make a giving page and spread the word! With your leadership, we will spread joy to our clients this holiday season.
