Providing a joyous Christmas experience to underprivileged children in Butte County!


You can make a real difference this Christmas by donating to Gift of Hope so that we can provide hand-picked gifts for local children in need.


In 2022, we had 1,557 children who received Christmas assistance from Gift of Hope. For each child, we asked their parent about the child's needs and wants so that we can provide presents that will meet the child's necessities as well as provide items that they will enjoy for Christmas.

Watch this video to find out how Gift of Hope is impacting families in our community who benefit from Gift of Hope, and how you can make a difference.

How it works

Families register
with us 

Parents sign up their children online with us and then confirm their identity and low-income status with us on our
registration day.

We make a shopping list for each child

We create shopping lists based on children's needs and wants. These lists include age, sizes, and things they like, so you know exactly what to buy.

you choose a child and shop for them

You select a child to sponsor. 
There is no limit to how many children you can support, however we do suggest a minimum spending of $50-$100 per child.


Once you have finished shopping, deliver the gifts to us or have the online shopping sent to our address! Each child will receive their gifts on our handout days as well as receive a free day pass to the Lights of Hope winter wonderland.


About Gift of Hope

Since 2005, we have partnered with the local community to provide Christmas assistance to families in need in Butte County, California. Last year alone, with your support, we made Christmas happen for 1,557 underprivileged children, as well as give them each a free day pass to the Lights of Hope winter wonderland. 


This year, we have around the same number of children signed up with Gift of Hope to receive Christmas assistance, and we need your help again to make these children's Christmas wish come true. You can help by sponsoring a child, donating money, or giving new clothes and toys.
