Wish Lists

To honor the kids we serve, we only accept NEW items.

Help fulfill the needs of our children.

A fundamental way we help children at risk throughout Utah is through our Wish List. Donors help fulfill our needs by buying the items identified and donating them, allowing us to have essentials on hand when children come into the system and meet their needs during their stay. Many children coming into the emergency shelter have little more than the clothes on their backs. 

The Wish Lists meet the emergency needs and help us give the children normal childhood experiences, such as the simple joys of a birthday party, toys of their own, and a stuffed animal to hug.

If making a monetary donation is preferred, please click here to pay via credit card or check.

Thank you for making a significant impact in the lives of abused and neglected children.

Household Safety Items To Serve Children Being Placed In Kinship Homes

1 out of 10 Utah children (84,000) lives with their grandparents or other relatives. If a child cannot safely remain in their own home, the best alternative is to place them with a Kinship Caregiver. We lessen the trauma children experience when we have them live with kin. Doing so results in a better outcome for the children and their families.

You can support these families by donating state-required household safety items, enabling children to be quickly placed in Kinship care! Please visit the Amazon Kinship Home Shopping List to make a donation!

Christmas Box Resource Rooms

Each year, The Christmas Box International distributes  donations through our resource rooms for at-risk children being supported by the Department of Human Services. There are 22 resource rooms in Utah providing emergency supplies; including, clothing, school supplies, and hygiene items. Help us start new rooms and stock already existing rooms by getting items from our Resource Room Amazon Wishlist.

Administrative Needs

While the kids are our top priority, we still have day to day needs in the office. Help us make every dollar count by donating office supplies from our Administrative Wishlist on Amazon.
