Bring Joy to a Child this Holiday Season
by Becoming a Holiday Friend
The holidays are a time for joy and laughter, to come together with family and friends and enjoy the season. But for low-income families struggling to make ends meet, the holidays are a time of extra stress.
Holiday Friends is a gift-giving program hosted by Beyond Housing that ensures that low-income families have a little something extra under the tree. Participating is easy. To get started, you will choose the number of children you would like to sponsor. You will then receive an email from us with the relevant information such as age, sizes for clothes, and a wish list from each child.Become a Holiday Friend
If you are unable to participate in Holiday Friends, we hope you will consider making a monetary contribution so all families in need are supported during the holiday season.Make a Donation
Details on Giving
Pledge to buy gifts for children in the St. Louis area. When you sign up, we will provide you with a wish list from each family. In the past, people have given 3+ items with a total value of $50 to $100 per child. These gifts can be practical, educational, or simply fun.
Or, get your friends, church group, or work involved and come together over the holiday season to collect gifts or raise money that will go directly to needy families.Holiday Friends FAQ
