One of Cap the Gap’s signature projects is our Christmas Giving program. Each foster child who participates in our program submits a wish list to Cap the Gap. Next, each child’s wish list is forwarded to a willing sponsor who purchases gifts to help fulfill his/her Christmas dreams. Sponsors are asked to spend between $150 and $200 per child. A child may be shared by several sponsors.
Thanks to the kindness of our donors, Cap the Gap also provides full stocked backpacks to all school age children, $25 gift cards to honor each child’s birthday, high school graduation gifts, camp tuition assistance and interactive play items for the visitation room at the Department of Children’s Services. Your generosity touches a foster child’s life in many ways.
If you, your family, church or civic organization is interested in donating to the Christmas Giving program, please do so here.
