Holiday Programs

Thanksgiving and Christmas Food Baskets

Any neighbor in need is eligible to participate in the Christmas and Thanksgiving Food Distributions. The zip code limit that generally applies to our pantry will not be in place for these distributions. You do not need to sign up in advance. Please bring photo ID the day of the distribution.

St. Xavier Food Basket Program

This program provides a Christmas food basket delivery to families in need around the city. 

Coat Distribution

Coat distributions happen in the winter to neighbors in need. You must bring ID for yourself and all other family members receiving a coat.  

Toy and Gift Programs

To participate in these programs you must sign up in advance and be selected. Sign ups for 2017 will be announced in late summer and start in the Fall. Signing up does not guarantee you a spot and priority is not given on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

Please bring a picture ID, proof of address, and IDs for each child. (This includes Birth Certificates, JFS printouts, medical cards, or a lease that lists all the names. We will not accept Social Security cards.)

Angel Toy Program

Families are eligible every two years for the Angel Toy Program. Everyone receiving gifts must be a household member. 

Families are invited to bring their children to 1125 Bank St. for the event. Parents will choose 2 - 3 toys for each child under the age of 14. There will be holiday crafts, pictures with Santa and other activities for the children.

Christmas Together Program

Families are eligible every three years for the Christmas Together program. Everyone receiving gifts must be a household member.

Chosen families will be matched with a sponsor and submit a Christmas wish list.
