The KidWorks’ Christmas Store has been a treasured tradition for the families we serve for 20 years. And YOU make it happen!

For many of the central Santa Ana families KidWorks serves, being able to purchase Christmas gifts is often not financially possible. Their limited funds go to rent and groceries. 

That’s especially true this year when inflation and the cost of gas have hit families so hard, especially those on very limited incomes.

Our goal for this year’s Christmas Store:  A gift for every student.

Here’s ways you can brighten the holidays for our students:

Help with store set up on Dec. 19 and clean up  on Dec. 21 (the day after Dec. 20 event at our Dan Donahue Center). To sign up, please email:

Here is how the Christmas gift program works for the parents of our students: Moms and dads purchase gifts for their sons and daughters at a discounted rate at the KidWorks Christmas Store on Dec. 20. KidWorks then deposits these proceeds into our benevolence fund, which provides financial and other support to families when they are in serious need or experience a crisis.

What makes the KidWorks Christmas Store so special for these parents is that it offers them a sense of being able to provide for their families. They are able to buy gifts for their children to make the holidays brighter. By purchasing the gifts at nominal cost instead of receiving them for free they feel respected and empowered.

KidWorks will send each donor a thank you letter acknowledging the contribution for their tax records.
