It's about more than toys

Join others like you to provide meals, clothing, toys and other household items for struggling families this holiday season.

United Christmas Service A Project of Financial Stability

For some families, Christmas wish lists are just that – wishes.

Listen closely and you can probably hear the sound of children across Central Indiana enthusiastically penning their wish lists, filled with the latest toys and trends they have to have. But the grim reality for many families is that those lists will remain unchecked. After all, when you don't know where your next meal is coming from, shopping for gifts takes a backseat to your family's basic needs.

But there is hope for these families. Through United Christmas Service, we can provide meals, clothing, toys and other household items for struggling families this holiday season. For approximately $116 per family, vouchers are distributed that will allow them to shop for those wish list items – and more.

Below are actual family requests we've received:

  • Slim Jims for my service dog
  • Denture adhesive
  • Pale yellow crib sheets
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle underwear
  • Taylor Swift CD (but not the last two)
  • Teachable Touchables Texture Squares (for children with Autism)
  • Ham for Christmas dinner
