Due to Covid 19 we are unable to hold our annual fundraising events "Giftburgers on the Plaza" and "Fashion Avenue." Each year we grant Gifts to families in need during the Christmas season. This year has been especially challenging for many families and we want to make sure we are still able to grant Gifts and make lives a little bit brighter.
Established in 1990 as “The Christmas Wish”, The Christmas Gift is in our 30th year of “helping make holiday dreams come true”. Each holiday season we ask our listeners to inform us of individuals and families who ﬁnd themselves in need during the most important time of the year; Christmas. Based on the philosophy of biggest need comes ﬁrst, we do our best to grant as many “Gifts” as possible. Most of these “Gifts” are recorded and played back each weekday morning in December until Christmas; every one of them touching your heart. In keeping with the mantra of keeping the holiday spirit all the year ‘round, we also grant “Gifts” outside Christmas time when the need arises. Our revenue is produced by fundraising activities including “Giftburgers” each summer, “Fashion Avenue” in the fall, and generous donations.
Since 1990, “The Christmas Gift” has generated over a million dollars for those in need.
