Christmas in July


July is a favorite month at The Christmas Box International. It is filled with summertime activities that kids love. Whether it’s catching a baseball game, watching fireworks, riding favorite rides at Lagoon, or diving into a pool, our kids have plenty to keep them busy for summer. But supplies and funds are still needed.

So we call it Christmas in July. And we need YOUR help to make it happen.

Our month-long fundraising effort is an opportunity for individuals and businesses to provide desperately needed services and basic needs 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.
