Bring Children Holiday Gifts


Recommended Posts

CLC has over 500 individual children hoping Santa will bring them something to open on Christmas morning. Our clients come from the poorest families in Washington. Some are abused and abandoned, some live in foster care, and most are in desperate need of health and education supports. We hope you will plan to become an Adopt-a-Family Volunteer Santa and give a child the joy and surprise of opening holiday gifts!


Simply contact our Head Elf, and let her know if you want to adopt a child or family. She will match you with a child, share that child’s story, and pass on her wish list – sizes included! We ask that you, as “Santa,” commit to giving each child two new gifts from that child’s wishlist, and a new outfit – shirt, pants, and shoes. We also ask that you provide a gift card for the family so they can buy the fixings for a holiday meal.


So - instead of giving your father another ugly tie, adopt a child in his honor! Instead of the same tired secret santa gifts, get together with your office and adopt a family or two! Instead of having a holiday party with your friends, adopt a family and go shopping together for “your” children! Or if you want to make a difference in a child’s life but have no more time for shopping, make a donation to CLC and the Head Elf will make sure every child has a gift or use it to support our children all year long.


If you’re ready to be a Volunteer Santa or have questions about the drive, please contact Head Elf Catharine Clarenbach at cclarenbach@childrenslawcenter.org or give her a call at 202-467-4900 X567
