Give a Kid a Christmas

The Christmas Program started in 1993, and now helps provide Christmas for disadvantaged families who live in Holt or have a student attending Holt schools. Give-A-Kid-A-Christmas has helped hundreds of parents provide great memories for their children, ages 0-18 years old. In 2020, there over 225 families received Holiday gifts and new clothing for their children. That means that over 500 children were able to return to school after the holiday break knowing they were remembered at Christmas just like their peers. (and with the confidence of a new outfit)

How to Receive Help

This program is for all children who qualify, ages 0 to 18 years (even teenagers, as long as they are still in high school or the high school’s early college program).

Signing up for 2021 Holiday Support had a deadline of December 3rd. We are no longer accepting applications for the 2021 season.

Distribution of items for those that signed up will be on Thursday, December 16th at Holt United Methodist Church on the Corner of Cedar & Aurelius in Holt, MI. ** Be sure to mark December 16th in your calendar! **

How to Provide Help

There are several ways you can help provide a wonderful Christmas for our families this year. Pick the one(s) that works best for you. Your acts of kindness and generosity will make a huge impact on a child’s life this Christmas. Thank you on behalf of our entire community for considering a way to support this program this upcoming season!
