Become a Santa’s Helper

Are you interested in helping children wake up with gifts under their Christmas tree this year? Sign up to help families in need in School District 303 this holiday season. 


We’re looking for individuals, families, businesses, groups or neighborhoods to help us with our 8th Annual Christmas Gift Sponsorship. Sponsors need to purchase 3-10 items off each child’s personalized wish list. Expect to spend AT LEAST $50 per child. 


What makes us different? We work hand in hand with D303 social workers who recognize children who’s families may need a little help providing Christmas gifts to their children. They collect personalized wish lists from these children’s parents in need, and we distribute these to you. This is an anonymous program, we have no idea who these children are since they are assigned a Child ID number when the lists are given to us.  

It’s because of sponsors like you that we’re able to help so many children and make this event such a huge success! Over the years, we have helped 2097 children wake up on Christmas morning with gifts under their trees.

Will you join with us to help children in need in D303 have a brighter Christmas?

Santa's Helper Volunteer Form 2021


Thank you for wanting to help Santa shop for gifts this year! You will receive an e-mail with the personalized shopping list for each child October 26th-30th. We ask that our Santa's helpers purchase at least 3, but no more than 10, items off of each child's wish list and that you spend AT LEAST $50 per child.

***If we have more shoppers than children needing help, you may be given less wish lists than you signed up for. 


Shopping for 10 or more children? Please upload your logo for recognition

Businesses & groups shopping for 10 or more children will receive special recognition on our Facebook page & website.  To streamline the process as much as possible, please upload a copy of your logo.


Unable to shop for specific gifts? There are still several and equally important ways you can brighten a child’s holiday season....
