Our Mission

The Christmas Box International charity works to prevent child abuse. We partner with local, national, and international groups to improve the quality of life for children, teens, and young adults who are victims of abuse, neglect, trafficking or are facing homelessness or other risks that no child should have to face.

Our mission is simple: Every child deserves a childhood.

The Christmas Box Hope Tree was created and donated to the Salt Lake City Christmas Box House to represent the 125,000 children who have been protected and served by The Christmas Box International over the last 25 years.  Click here to learn more.

Help Fix Our Houses

After two decades, our emergency shelters in Moab, Salt Lake, and Ogden, Utah really need some LOVE. We began renovations in January 2021 and will continue to work through the list until everything is complete.

Kids Helping Kids

Throughout Utah, there are children who are living without the protection of responsible, drug and violence-free parents and adults.

You can help make a difference in their lives by participating in the Kids Helping Kids program, where you and your friends can raise funds or conduct donation drives.

Project Elf

Help provide Christmas-morning gifts for children and youth in need.

Each holiday season, The Christmas Box International helps fill Santa’s sleigh for children, teens, and young adults in our community who have been abused, neglected, or face homelessness
