Thank you to everyone who participated in 2020! Check back during the holidays to support your neighbors in 2021. In the meantime, we hope you’ll consider other ways to give.

Helping Holidays connects the Anchorage community to Catholic Social Services clients. This program provides gifts for specific families in need, and you can help!

How It Works

When the holiday season arrives, we’ll create lists of clients who are currently working with one of our case managers and could use some holiday cheer. Each one will be assigned a letter and number identifier so that you can sign up to sponsor one or more families of your choosing.

Using the lists, you can also support clients in a certain program, including Homeless Family Services, Supportive Family Services, Refugee Assistance and Immigration Services and Clare House.

Support a Family

Once you selected a family to support, you’ll note their identifier and submit our online signup form to get started. We also welcome businesses to get involved! If you’d like to donate as part of a company, simply provide your organization’s information in the form so that we can give you proper recognition. Once you sign up, you will receive an email with the family’s wish list.
