For 29 years, you have spread Christmas cheer through Caring Gifts.  Certainly to the recipients, who see the love of family and friends in the gift. Even more smiles appear on the faces of those we serve: veterans who now have a home, seniors who live more independently and children who have a brighter future.

Continue the tradition — or start a new one by sending Caring Gifts today!

Honor your friends and family by making a Christmas donation to Volunteers of America using the form below. In return, we will send a beautiful, hand-wrapped angel to all those on your holiday list, and let them know the donation you make in their name will benefit everyone we serve throughout the year.

Thank you for your generosity!


* November 26, 2018 is the first day of mailing 2018 Caring Gifts angels.
