Be a Christmas Angel for a family this holiday season
Each year, HumanKind provides Christmas for our families who are facing challenging times and crisis. At this time of year many of the families are faced with difficult decisions to stay the course to financial stability and wellness, or sacrifice and make sure their children feel the magic of the holiday.
While our staff continue to work with these parents to achieve their goals, you can make sure this holiday season is still full of magic and joy. HumanKind’s Christmas Angels program is unique in the focus to empower the parents and restore their pride. Gifts are given directly to the parents along with wrapping paper, ribbons, tape, gift tags and everything needed to wrap the gifts with their own love. Then they give the gifts to their children on Christmas morning, experiencing a bit of magic themselves. A priceless gift to share in the season of giving.
As you head off with your own Christmas list, please consider making room to ease the worry of another parent who wants to provide Christmas for their child.
Here is how you can help:
❄️ Sign up to be a Christmas Angel! Contact us by email here or call (434) 845-5944. Once you are confirmed as an angel, we will provide you with a wish list from the child and items needed for the family. We would like our families to be able to pick up their gifts in the week before Christmas. Please deliver your gifts to 1660 Graves Mill Road, Lynchburg, VA 24502 by Wednesday, December 15, 2021.
❄️ Don’t have time for shopping? You can make a donation to the Christmas Angels program and we take care of the rest! For just $36 you can provide $200 worth of clothing, gifts and a stocking filled with personal care items! Your gift will stretch so far because it will be combined with donations and the work of volunteers. Click here to give now at humankind.org/ChristmasAngels.
❄️Coordinate a gift drive at your business, school, or church! Collect new, unwrapped toys for all ages and we will use them to help fill the gaps so every family gets what they need this Christmas. Contact us if you need more information!
❄️ We are always in need of wrapping supplies (i.e.: wrapping paper, ribbons, tape, boxes, bags, and gift tags) to give to the parents!
Christmas Angels + Volunteers are still needed!

Every year we get several heartfelt thank you notes from parents so grateful for the program. Here’s a note from a Christmas Angel family recipient:
Thank you for sponsoring our family for the Christmas holiday. At the time we were experiencing tremendous financial hardship and had no way to provide Christmas to our children on our own. You greatly surprised us with the multitude of gifts and outpouring of love and holiday spirit. You made a Christmas miracle happen for our family! There were so many wonderful toys for the children. They were excited and delighted as they opened gifts Christmas morning. Without your generosity and support, Christmas would have never happened for our family. Thank you so much for all of your help, it is greatly appreciated.
