Christmas Wishes 12-13-17 034 EDITEDThanks to the generosity of the St. Louis community, more than 425 clients and their families received gifts through the Christmas Wishes program in  2019.

2020 has been different for all of us, and we’re all wondering what the holidays will look like this year. In a time of so much uncertainty, please know that St. Patrick Center is still here to serve people who are homeless or facing homelessness. We will continue to provide holiday gifts through our Christmas Wishes program this December.

Client wish lists will be emailed beginning November 6.

How the Program Works

Christmas Wishes assists more than 425 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 11 from 9am to 3:30pm or Saturday, December 12 from 10am to noon.
