If you are the parent or guardian of a child under the age of 16 years, who will not otherwise receive Christmas gifts, you may register for your child to receive gifts.
At pre-registration, you will schedule an appointment date and time to return to select the gifts for your child/children. We ask that you honor this appointment time as up to 15 households are scheduled every 15 minutes on distribution days.
You must live in one of the following communities: St. Cloud, Sartell, Sauk Rapids, St. Augusta, Waite Park, St. Joseph, Rice, Eden Valley, Watkins, and Kimball. **correction: also now serving Royalton
Child/children must reside in the household of the person registering.
You must register in person at Catholic Charities Emergency Services during program hours: Mondays 9-6, Wednesdays 9-7, Thursdays 1-4 and Fridays 9-12. Registration begins in early November and ends the middle of December. Exact dates for 2017 are to be determined.
We ask that you to agree to register your child/children for only one Holiday program, so that the generosity of the community may be shared with as many people as possible.
Please bring with you:
Identification for yourself and the child/children. This could include a driver’s license, state-issued ID card, social security card, medical insurance card or birth certificate.
Proof of address. This could include a recently dated utility bill or a piece of mail addressed to you at your current address (not junk mail.) A driver’s license or other identification card may NOT be used as proof of your current address.
Guardians will be asked to provide guardianship paperwork.
Holiday Toys are distributed annually in the month of December. Appointments will be made for individual time slots. Distritubion dates for 2017 are to be determined.
Volunteers are needed each year to assist with toy distribution in a fast-paced, energetic environment! Shifts run four-hours, morning, mid-day or evening for distribution dates. Dates for 2017 are to be determined.
Contact Catholic Charities Emergency Services at 320.229.4560. Volunteers must be over 16 years of age.
Volunteer spaces are limited so call now!
