DePelchin Holiday Project

Our 2023 Holiday Project fulfilled the holiday wish list of more than 1,400 children in our care! It’s not too late to support DePelchin kids.

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, we fulfilled 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. While there is no longer an opportunity to sponsor children directly, you can still help by sending gifts through our Amazon Wish List, directing your donation drives to DePelchin, or making a gift in support of our mission.
