The mission of the U. S.

Toys for Tots aim to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.

4. christmas angel tree
Every child deserves to experience the joy of Christmas morning. And thanks to supporters of The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program, thousands of American children will find this waiting under their Christmas trees this year. The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program provides new clothing or toys for children of needy families through the support of donors. Found in local companies and corporations, Angel Trees are decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the first name, age and gender of a child in need of presents. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags.

5. project giving
During the Christmas season, Project Giving utilizes the educational system via teachers, counselors, and principals to determine the families within their schools who are most in need. What makes this branch of our Project Giving Organization so unique is that, "WE FIND OUR FAMILIES IN NEED!" After selecting families whose needs are genuine, Project Giving partners families with businesses, organizations, church affiliations, families, and individuals who "adopt" them for Christmas. Of course, if desired, the adoption partnership could continue throughout the year! If you are looking for a beautiful manner in which to exercise your compassion during the holidays, the Family Christmas Adoption Project is a marvelous way to demonstrate the Spirit of Christmas with those who are truly in need.
