Holiday Gift Drive Wish List

Wish List Instructions for 2020

Thank you for supporting our families served by Washburn Center for Children! Your gift brightens the holidays for families whose tight budget often means they can’t easily afford holiday gifts. This year, to reduce exposure to COVid-19, we appreciate your understanding to the adjustments we’ve made to protect staff, community members and clients. Thank you for making the season a more joyful for families in our community.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Each gift can be between $20 – $25 in value
    • This will help families with more than one child manage as gifts vary between siblings.
  • We encourage donations of Gift Cards to help reduce contact and potential points of exposure. Gift cards are a great opportunity to empower parents to purchase gifts for their children. We can also easily mail those to clients, as the majority of therapy sessions are still via telehealth.
  • We have established a Target wish list for those who prefer to purchase specific toys. You can shop online and ship directly to Washburn Center or shop in-store and drop off gifts on December 3 or 4.
  • We also accept cash donations designated to the Gift Drive that we will use to purchase gift cards, gifts and gift wrapping.
