Donate to Secret Santa

ss donate

There are so many children in our community that do not have many of the simple things that we take for granted.  Warm clothes, shoes that are appropriate for

 the season, a warm pair of pajamas, books, toys to play with… I could go on and on.  While Secret Santa, along with the many sponsors that support us each year, have been able to provide gifts for thousands of children over the years, the need seems to grow each year.

A percentage of all moneys received to go toward taking care of children.  Even though we have sponsors that become a Secret Santa for the children in or program, each year we have other expense related to running our program

The only salaries that we pay are during the time our office is open the last two weeks of October and all of November.  We generally have two to three people that work tirelessly for very little money – they just have big hearts!  Some of the other expense include stamps, office supplies, phones, internet access, and truck rentals to get the present from the drop off locations to the distribution locations. 

Would you consider donating to Secret Santa to help us achieve our mission of never letting a child go without on Christmas morning?  There are several ways you can donate.

Sponsor A Child
$ 75.00
  • When you donate $75.00 one of our Elves will make sure one child’s Christmas wishes will come true.
Sponsor Two Children
$ 150.00
  • With your $150.00 donation you will be providing a family of 2 children with at least 3 of the gifts they have asked Santa for this year.
Donate Any Amount
$ 0.00
  • Any amount you would like to donate will go to help make a child’s Christmas dreams come true.

You can also mail a check to Secret Santa Foundation | PO Box 3982 | Charleston WV 25339.

The Elf Assistant Program

If you would like to sponsor a child but don’t have time to shop or prefer to let us do the shopping for you, you can simply donate $75 per child and let us do the shopping.  The Elf assistant program is also perfect for those who do not live in the area but would still like to sponsor children in our program.  

We take your donation and the child’s wish list to a local store and make sure that the child’s gift requests are fulfilled.  We transport the gifts to our distribution locations so that your sponsored child receives those gifts for Christmas.  There is no charge for the service, and our volunteers are happy to shop for you.  You can sponsor as many children as you’d like by sending Secret Santa a check or making a PayPal donation through our website.

Secret Santa would like to thank you for your support!  Your donation is greatly appreciated and will be used to make sure Secret Santa is able to provide for each child in need.

As a leader in our community you no doubt understand the pressing need for solutions to many of the problems in our area.  Through no fault of their own many of the children in our area go without things most of us take for granted.  Warm Clothes, good shoes and toys are just a few of the items.  Our efforts to solve these problems can’t take effect unless we have the support of everyone in our community.

That’s where you come in!

We are asking you to donate to help Secret Santa continue the work we have done for the last 32 years.  By donating, we will be able to help thousands of children in Kanawha, Boone and Putnam Counties.
