It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Because of the generosity of friends like you these lyrics ring true at Cunningham Children's Home. Cunningham youth are able to enjoy all the season has to offer:
  • Activities like writing out wish lists, shopping for loved ones, and baking cookies.
  • Celebrations like the Christmas story, a Walk through Bethlehem, and a candlelit service.
  • Experiences like a visit with Santa, trimming the tree, singing carols, and opening presents selected just for them.

Many individuals, families and organizations choose to give gifts to our youth during the holiday season. We are grateful for your community support as we have 351 kids to shop for this year! 

The ability to celebrate the joy of Christmas is a priority to us, and with your help, we are able to bring our kids hope during this season. Here are some ways you can make Christmas special for Cunningham youth. 

Purchase Gifts from our Christmas 

Wish List
Our wish list is full of gift ideas that our kids typically long for at Christmas time. You can find our general Christmas wish list at

Buy Gifts for a Specific Number of Youth
Some groups enjoy shopping for specific items off of one child's list. If you'd like specific names this year, please send an email to and let us know how many names you'd like and whether you have any other preference, like age or gender. We will prepare and send a list to you with names, ages, and gift ideas for each youth.
