Get Involved


We can serve more and more children in need if we work together. Here are several ways you can get involved and help us serve at-risk children.

Village Run

Please join us for our 10th Annual Village Run at Lakeridge Junior High School in Orem on Saturday, March 25, 2023. The Village Run includes a 5K, 1K, Carnival, and Easter Egg Hunt! All money raised by this event will directly serve abused, neglected, and abandoned teenagers currently in foster care in Utah County.

Leave a Legacy

Consider making The Christmas Box International part of your long-term financial planning. Whether you are deferring a gift or have an estate and want to protect your assets, there are many options to consider when thinking about planned giving.

Corporate Giving

The Christmas Box International exists because of our fantastic community and amazing corporate partners. Our corporate partners raise money to support our programs, helping us provide essentials such as clothing, shoes, books, toys, and activities outside the shelters. Get your employees involved to help us provide for Utah’s abused and neglected children.

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.

Help fill the children’s Wish Lists

Children often come into a house with little more than the clothes on their backs.  Each of our shelter homes and resource rooms across the state have specific wish lists from the children for clothing, toys, books, school supplies, etc., often needed right away, which you can buy and drop off by appointment.

Volunteer your Time

There are opportunities for individuals, families, and groups to donate their time, talents, and efforts on specific projects.  These opportunities change, and needs may suddenly arise, so please check back often and see what options may be available.
