Christmas in July


July is a favorite month at The Christmas Box International. It's a time of year filled with summertime activities that kids love most. Whether it’s catching a baseball game, watching the fireworks, riding their favorite Lagoon ride, or diving into a swimming pool, our kids have plenty to keep them busy in the months ahead.

That’s why we're calling this month Christmas in July. And we need YOUR help!

Our month-long fundraising effort is your opportunity to provide desperately needed services and basic needs items to children and teens who have experienced abuse, neglect, or are facing homelessness. The Christmas Box Houses and Resource Rooms are open year-round, and they’re ready to be restocked with summer essentials for the kids!

For the first time, we've created an online campaign for you to raise funds with your family, friends, and/or coworkers. Join as an individual fundraiser, start a team of fundraisers, or join an already established team to start making a difference. To become a fundraiser, click here.
