Grant the wishes of an individual child, or several children, by purchasing all four items on their personalized Wish Lists. Shoppers can expect to spend, on average, between $200 to $300 on each child’s individual list. Lists for 2021 will be available in early November. In years past, this individualized program has filled up quickly.
Help fill our youths’ stockings with extra goodies by purchasing items from our stocking stuffer list. These items can be found at most stores, at bargain prices, and on our Amazon and Target wish lists.
Sponsor the Holiday Wish List Program by providing a monetary donation that will cover the costs of any last-minute items, or for any youth who come in right before Christmas. Donate Online, and select “Wish List” from the dropdown menu. You can also help by providing gift cards to stores like Kohl’s, Meijer, Target, and Amazon to help us fulfill last-minute wishes.
Our Vista Maria Boutique and offices become the epicenter of holiday cheer every December! You can help sort and wrap gifts, and organize “Santa’s Workshop” right here on Vista Maria’s campus. Volunteer times are typically 10am–6pm, Monday-Friday, with a few special weekend opportunities.
COVID-19 and Volunteering
Due to the pandemic, we’ve significantly reduced all traffic to campus, including most volunteers. We are in the early days of welcoming our volunteers back to campus, which will happen slowly, and in stages, so that we can mitigate the spread of germs as much as possible.
