We offer Christmas programs to help you meet your family's needs and provide your children with some gifts for the holidays. You may apply for Christmas Adoption or a Community Basket

To be eligible, families must have children under the age of 18, not be registered with another organization for Christmas assistance, and not have been in the 2016 Christmas program at Bishop Sullivan Center. 

Santa will also visit our Community Kitchen before Christmas to hear holiday wishes and pass out toys.
