Help Brighten the Holidays

At Sycamores, we believe every family’s holiday celebration should be special. And each year, thanks to the generosity of kind-hearted individuals, businesses, and other groups and organizations we are able to provide gifts for approximately 500 children, young adults and families in need.

Sycamores Adopt-A-Family
2022 Adopt-A-Family recipient.

For many of the families we serve, the gifts we provide may be the only presents they receive this holiday season.

Please join us to help make holiday wishes come true for these deserving children, young adults and families in need! Below are some opportunities for you to share the joy of the season:


This meaningful tradition connects generous donors with deserving families who need extra support with gifts of toys, clothing, household items and/or food during the holidays. Sycamores will provide a brief narrative about the family and their present situation, as well as a wish list, giving donors insight into the family’s needs. You can choose to adopt a small, medium or large family. On average our donors spend $50 per family member and $50-$100 for a gift for the entire family.  

Annual Toy Drive:

Donate Gifts
Spread holiday cheer for children, ages 0 to 18 years, by donating toys, gift cards and other gifts. Gifts should be unwrapped and have no association with weapons or violence.

Host a Toy Drive
Gather your colleagues, classmates or friends and host a toy drive. Sycamores will provide the holiday tags with specific wishes, or you can hold a general toy drive and collect gift cards or toys from our list of suggestions.

Make A Donation:

We always welcome cash donations too. Your donation of any amount will help us make their holiday wishes come true and also provide the mental health and support services they need throughout the year.
