2018 Children's Christmas4Kids

Our 2018 Christmas4Kids program will be starting on November 15th, 2018 until December 20th, 2018. A huge thank you to our corporate sponsors, Growing Up in the Valley Magazine, Bill Meador Insurance, Wisteria Ridge Corporate & Wedding Venue and Promos, Pageant and Pretty Things.

Each year, we help raise funding for a limited amount of children that are part of our program here in South Western Virginia. Last year, we raised over $1,750 to help over 87 kids here in our area.

100% of our Goal this Christmas!!!

Thanks to These Corporate Sponsors this Year: 


How can I apply to have my child or children on the list? 

You can start by filling out the online form if you are a current or former Blessing Bag client. You can find the application here, which can be filled out each October for the current year.

How you determine which kids will be on your list each year? 

Each October, families that use our blessing bags each month must apply to the Christmas4Kids program. In addition to applying, each family must provide pay-stubs and checking account statement proving they are at or below the poverty line. Applications for this year care currently closed. 

Can I put my kids on this years Christmas4Kids program? 

Unfortunately, no, but you can apply next October when we open our enrollment to families that we support. The families that we work with use our blessing bags on a regular basis and those that apply must meet our financial requirements. Additionally, you must be a family that uses our normal Blessing Bags on a regular basis.

Many families that use our Blessing Bag Program have been waiting to get into the Christmas4Kids Program.

Where are these children located? 

Christmas4Kids is local to Southwestern Virginia, home of the Blessing Bag Program. Children live within our DMA, Demographic Marketing Area, also known as the Roanoke-Lynchburg Metro area.

I'm one of the parents of a child from the list, how do I receive my gifts for the kids? 

You should have received your letter in the mail in late October 2018. Inside, you will find instructions on the meeting points for Roanoke, Lynchburg, Franklin County, Floyd County and the New River Valley. if you need further help, contact us and please include your BBPID number.

I just made a donation to Christmas4Kids online, is it tax deductible?

If giving online, you will receive an email receipt, please notify us of the donation you made and whom you want it to go to, otherwise it will go into our general fund.
