Christmas with Epworth

Christmas with Epworth is our annual drive for community members to fulfill the Christmas wishes of children at Epworth. It provides gifts for the children to open on Christmas morning—gifts that bring smiles and excitement!  These are both personal gifts and group/cottage gifts that the children can enjoy together.

Each child at Epworth experiences a bountiful Christmas morning that includes their requested wishes, gift cards, and usually a few surprises we have selected for them.  For some residents this will be their first Christmas away from their families, so we go above and beyond to help make this day special.

The Christmas with Epworth program also fulfills another vital need at Epworth—it helps provide for the needs of children for the other 364 days of the year. 


Sign Up to Fulfill a Child’s Wishes!
