Holiday Gift Drive

Bring a smile to the face of a Maryhurst child this Holiday season! You can help us by participating in our Holiday Gift Drive. This is a perfect opportunity for individuals, friends, family, church, neighborhoods, or places of employment.

This year we have several options:

  1. Fulfill one or more children’s full, individualized wish lists — this list will consist of 6 gifts (approximately $250) or 3 gifts (approximately $125) that the child has personally chosen.
  2. We can create gift tags in $25, $40, and $60 dollar range. Each gift tag will list the child’s name, age, and one item a child has picked in the dollar range you choose.
  3. Donate gift cards from Walmart, Target, Amazon, Meijer, Kohl’s, or Old Navy in $25 increments.

Wish lists will arrive via email the first week of November and gift tags will be mailed out upon request.

Gift Drop-off Logistics:

Due to our current COVID regulations and attempts to keep our donors/staff safe we have blocked off the week of December 14th – December 18th as gift drop-off week. Gifts can be delivered to 1015 Dorsey Lane, 40223 from 8:30am-5:00pm anytime during the week - please see this link for a map with parking and dropoff instructions.

Please make sure all gifts are unwrapped. If you need a specific drop off time, please feel free to reach out to Lori Cecil at and we will arrange a time that will accommodate your needs.
