Children’s Holiday Program Needs Your Help!

Annual holiday program helps over 1,500 children across Unity House programs

Help put the sparkle in the holidays by helping out in one of three ways:

Give a cash donation or gift card: Help us buy toys for hundreds of local children in the community. While the intention is to match children directly with donor families and organizations, monetary donations are a crucial aspect of our program because they allow children that have not been matched to still receive gifts. You can make a secure donation here.

Conduct a toy drive. Help us by conducting a toy drive by encouraging families, businesses, and organizations to buy and solicit gifts. The Unity House Development Office can provide a suggested toy list. We know that some donors will want to select their own toys and please know that every single new toy will be gratefully accepted and placed into the hands of a child in need.

Shop for individual children by ‘adopting’ them. Help us by being matched to a specific child or family which makes the donation process very special. Many parents utilize this experience as a way to teach their own children the significance of giving back within the community, and some employee groups favor this process.  That’s terrific!  We have countless families that want and need help. We also need gift cards and extra toys for those who come to us late in the season.

Please contact Mandy Brown by phone at 518.274.2607 ext.4139 or email at to discuss how you would like to help us make the holidays sparkle for children in need!
