Christmas Wishes assists more than 525 clients of St. Patrick Center and their families at Christmas time. Many are impoverished and have little or no money to purchase Christmas gifts for their children, and will be celebrating their first Christmas in their new homes. Clients receive a minimum of two gifts per person in their families.

We need individuals, families, businesses, schools and churches to sponsor families and purchase a minimum of two gifts, usually in the $15 to $20 range, per person.

We are also in need of $20 Schnucks and Target gift cards for our Shamrock Club clients who are struggling with mental illness or substance abuse.

If you are interested in purchasing gifts or gift cards, please complete and submit our Christmas Wishes Sponsorship Form 2017.
