DePelchin Holiday Project

Join DePelchin Children’s Center as we make this holiday season brighter for more than 1,400 children in our care!

DePelchin’s Holiday Project is our annual effort to provide gifts and basic needs items to children in our care across Texas. This year, with the help of donors and community partners, our goal is to fulfill the holiday wish lists of more than 1,400 children served by DePelchin in Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Lubbock.

Each year, individuals and families, as well as corporate, community and faith groups, come together to make the season brighter for the children and teenagers served by DePelchin, including children in foster care. Please help us brighten this holiday season for our kids by sponsoring a child(ren), hosting a donation drive, or helping in one of the other ways listed below.
