The holidays are fast approaching!  We invite you to make a dream come true for a child this year by participating in the annual DePelchin Children’s Center Holiday Project.  Last year, generous donors fulfilled the holiday wishes of more than 1,300 children, and we anticipate even more children will be in need this year.

You can make this dream come true for DePelchin’s children in three ways:

Sponsor a child.  Provide requested items for a specific child.  Please visit our holiday project page to see the wish lists available and sponsor a child. All gifts must be received by 5:00 pm on December 8th to ensure delivery by December 24th. Please contact our Houston area staff to make a delivery appointment:

Host a toy drive.  Collect toys at your work place, holiday party, church, synagogue, or other holiday gatherings. This is a simple and fun way to support children of DePelchin while getting your friends and family involved!  Visit our toy drive page for a list of most requested items and to download our logo and toy drive flyer to use on your personal donation boxes.

Make a cash donation.  DePelchin will use your cash donation to purchase gifts or needed items for any wish lists that are not sponsored.  You may make a donation online or mail your contribution by December 12 to 4950 Memorial Drive Houston, Texas 77007, Attention: Holiday Project.

Donations of gift cards are also extremely helpful in fulfilling the wishes of our children!  For more information, please contact

On behalf of all of the children and families whose holidays will be brighter becasue of your generosity, we thank you!
