Make a difference
Give them the gift of an unforgettable holiday.


For many of the families we serve, the holiday season is not filled with joy and excitement, but with stress and worry. Parents and caretakers juggle the pressure to provide gifts with the ongoing struggle to meet basic needs, such as paying rent and putting food on the table. Again this year, our Wellnest families have faced devastating disadvantages, including homelessness, and the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Join us in bringing joy, comfort, and relief to struggling children and their families this holiday season with Wellnest’s Holiday Gift Drive. Together, we can give them the gift of an unforgettable holiday. Whether you are an individual, family, community organization, or business, here are four ways to get involved:
