Christmas in the City

On December 16th, Blue Heart International will be hosting Christmas in the City. We will be bringing a sparkle of Christmas magic to 300+ families living in low-income neighborhoods.

You can bring Christmas joy for children infant to 17-years-old by donating a new, unwrapped gift at one of our many toy collection sites throughout the region. We will also collect wrapping paper, bows, and tape for our gift-wrapping station and gently used coats for kids!  Families at the event will have an opportunity to shop for free, select a gift for each child in their family and have it fully wrapped and ready for Christmas morning!

You can help a family in one or more of the following ways:
