Give Hope for the Holidays!

​​​There are children in our community who do not know the joy of opening presents or holiday family dinners. Hope for the Holidays is your chance to change that.

We are currently looking for businesses, organizations or individuals to sponsor 350 children for the 2018 holiday season. Become a sponsor today!

How it Works

Sponsors are paired up with a child (or children) and​ given paper ornaments with specific information about each child. Sponsors commit to purchasing gifts for their assigned child by Monday, December 10. Gifts are delivered to the Boys Town North Florida office or arrangements can be made for pick up.

What is Needed from Sponsors

  • Please tell us how many children you would like to sponsor. Some sponsors request to sponsor a "family." Ornaments with the child's wish list will be delivered to you by Monday, November 19.
  • Purchase new gifts for each child and label them with the child's name. We encourage gifts that promote family togetherness such as board games or craft projects.
  • The gifts can be delivered to the Boys Town office or our staff can pick up the gifts from sponsors on or before Monday, December 10.
  • For those of you with no time to shop, cash donations are also accepted. We will use these donations to purchase the gifts on your behalf. Donations can be made online or mailed to us Attention:Hope for the Holidays Campaign.

For more information about how you can help provide Hope for the Holidays, please contact Lindsey McDole at 850-504-5026 or If you know someone you may be interested in helping with Hope for the Holidays, please download our flyer or find us on Facebook.

 "Let us all join in making this the happiest Christmas season for ourselves by generous giving. We will thus all be repaid countless times in personal happiness."
