The simple act of celebrating each and every child during the holidays and on birthdays despite their circumstances is at the heart of the Precious Gift program. We want every child to experience those most treasured memories of being a kid: the anticipation of unwrapping new gifts or blowing out the candles on their very own birthday cake. Family celebrations also give children hope for the future as well as provide a sense of normalcy during difficult times.
Because Every Child is a Gift Worth Celebrating
1 in 10 families cannot afford to provide their children with gifts during the holiday season. This number more than doubled from 2020 to 2021 (Deloitte Insights, 2021)

How it Works
We collect gifts for the holidays and birthday supplies
A Precious Child collects donations of new toys, gift cards and gifts for children (babies through teenagers).
The community steps up during the holiday seasons
During the holidays, we rely on generous support from individuals, companies, churches and other organizations to ensure that each child is sponsored and receives something special.
We distribute gifts
We distribute the gifts to children in need through our Resource Center as well as through our Agency Partners.
Kids can celebrate their birthday with a birthday bag
During the year, when families shop in A Precious Child’s Resource Center, we provide families of kids who have an upcoming birthday with everything they need to celebrate the big day: a birthday gift, cake mix, icing and candles.
