Child Advocacy Center Looking for ‘Secret Santas’


The Child Advocacy Center is looking for families or businesses to sign up to be a ‘Secret Santa’

“Christmas is fast approaching and there are still children and families on our Secret Santa waiting list,” said Child Advocacy Center Family Services Coordinator Jennifer Gamble. “It’s not too late for your family, business, or your organization to get involved.” 

“Bringing joy to children who need it most is what the holidays are really all about,” encouraged Gamble. “Please consider sponsoring a family and help us give children who have had a difficult year the magic of Christmas.” 

There are three ways you can make a difference this Christmas: 

  • Sponsor a family as their Secret Santa. Shop from the children’s wish list provided by the CAC and purchase gift cards for food. 
  • Be a Secret Santa by providing gift cards for the family to purchase Christmas gifts and food. This is a great option if you don’t have time to shop.   
  • Sponsor the Child Advocacy Center during the holidays by providing a special offering, in-kind gift, or financial contribution.  Your sponsorship will help us continue to provide crisis intervention services free of charge to children and families. 

It is a simple process.  Visit the Child Advocacy Center website at to download a sponsor form, fill it out, and send it back to us!
