Christmas Gift Ideas

Christmas is a very special time at Sunshine Ministries. Every child who participates in any of our youth programs throughout the year has an opportunity to visit “Santa’s Workshop” and choose their own present at our annual Christmas Party.

In addition to “Santa’s Workshop,” every parent who is registered in our C.A.R.E. Program gets to select a free new toy for every child in their household to take home to put under their own tree.

Any toys remaining after Christmas are used throughout the year for presents at our monthly birthday celebrations and for each Preschool child on their actual birthday.

The following list includes the most needed items to fill Santa’s Workshop this Christmas:
