Shop With a Bengal

Bengals players helped share the spirit of Christmas with local children.  

Looking for a way to feel the spirit of Christmas?

Last year, 7,400 families across Cincinnati received holiday food or gifts as a result of St. Vincent de Paul holiday programs at our Outreach Centers and our 56 parish-based volunteer groups. Here are two great ways you can help a forgotten child or family.

Adopt-A-Family Holiday Program

You can make a family’s Christmas wishes come true by adopting a family in need.

You will be given a Christmas wish list from a Cincinnati family in need. All year, our volunteers and staff serve people who can barely afford the basic necessities. For these families, providing holiday gifts and a celebratory meal is simply impossible. You can make a family's Christmas wishes come true by adopting a family in need. Your presents will be provided to local families in tremendous need this holiday season.

The Christmas Angel Toy Program

Angels are the guardians of hope and wonder, and keepers of magic and dreams.

Families are invited to our Outreach Center in the West End on a Saturday in December. While the parents select two gifts for their children, volunteers help the children make an arts  and crafts gift for their parents and receive a bag of candy from Santa. Parents take the gifts home to give to their children on Christmas morning.

You can become a Christmas Angel by donating new toys or a monetary gift to purchase toys for children who would otherwise be forgotten during the holidays. For more information, please call 513-421-HOPE (4673).
