SANTA’S MAGICAL HOLIDAY BREAKFAST
Children and their parent/caregivers are invited to experience the magic of the holidays by participating in Santa’s Magical Holiday Breakfast. Participants are treated to a nutritious breakfast, entertainment; visit with Santa and a hand selected, age appropriate, non violent toy.
The Santa’s Dream Program is provided primarily to children residing in homeless/family/abuse shelters. Children are asked to write a wish list to Santa. Dreams & Wishes answers their letters to Santa and fills their toy requests identified in their letters. Gifts are wrapped and delivered to the shelters several days prior to Christmas Eve and Shelter Staff place the gift bags under the tree for the children to open on Christmas morning
COMFORT DREAM BAGS
Comfort Dream Bags each contain a new pair of pajamas, a book, toiletries and a stuffed animal which are provided to the shelter for distribution to families arriving at the shelters.
BIRTHDAY WISHES PROGRAM
The Birthday Wishes Program aims to provide children residing in the community (with their natural and/or kin family) and who meet Dreams & Wishes criteria with the opportunity to experience a magical Birthday Celebration.
Each child referred to the program will receive everything needed to host an at-home birthday party along with a hand selected Birthday gift for child. It is hoped that each child referred to this program will be able to participate in a meaningful activity with their parent/caregiver and enhance and strengthen their relationship with their peers.
Dreams & Wishes organizes Un-Birthday Parties for those children residing in local shelters. Participants are provided with the opportunity to partake in a Birthday Party Celebration complete with a Pizza Party, loot bags, birthday gifts, entertainment and cake.
Referrals to Dreams & Wishes Programs are made by community organizations such as Children’s Aid Society, Abuse and Homeless Shelters and other reputable third parties.
