CCDS Holiday Giving Program


About Our Annual Holiday Giving Program: Several years ago we created a Holiday Giving Program, which enables us to help as many people as possible have a happier holiday season. Among the many individuals we serve, there are a number of parents who are financially unable to make this holiday season special for their children. Last year, thanks to the generosity of so many in the community, we were able to help over 100 families!

How to Participate
1. Contact Catholic Charities Disabilities Services and ask to adopt an individual or family from the CCDS Holiday Giving Tree. We also happily accept gift cards and monetary donations to use for purchasing gifts.

2. Receive a family or an individual’s holiday wish list and purchase gifts

3. Return the gifts to Catholic Charities Disabilities Services. Drop them off at our main offices, located at 1 Park Place, Suite 200, Albany, NY 12309 or we will gladly come to you to pick up the gifts.
Gifts appreciated by 12.9.16.

4. We’ll deliver the gifts, and together we will be bringing hope and joy to those in need.
