Christmas Morning

There's nothing quite so magical as waking up to find presents under the Christmas tree with your name on it. Then to discover that those presents are exactly what you've been wanting...that feeling of being seen and heard stays with you. At Sweet Celebrations, this is the feeling we try to provide for every child and teen living in a homeless shelter at Christmas whether they believe in Santa or not.

You can help to create meaningful memories for these children and teens this holiday season. Learn more about how you can volunteer or help.
