Christmas Wishes 12-13-17 034 EDITEDThanks to the generosity of the St. Louis community,  more than 425 St. Patrick Center clients and their families enjoyed a joyous 2020 Christmas season.

If you’re interested in sponsoring a family for the 2021 holiday season, please visit this page in September 2021 to sign up as a sponsor. We are grateful for the support of the community.


How the Program Works

Christmas Wishes assists more than 452 St. Patrick Center clients and their families each year. 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.

Potential sponsors should complete a short form indicating the number of people they would like to purchase gifts for this Christmas. Sponsors will then receive the wish list of the individual/family. The wish list will list all members of the household, clothing sizes, and special gift wishes. We ask that you purchase a minimum of two gifts per person in their families with suggested spending of $40 – $50 per person.

Gifts should be delivered to St. Patrick Center on Friday, December 10 from 9am to 3:30pm or Saturday, December 11 from 10am to noon.
