Welcome to the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington’s annual Angel Tree Christmas Gift program to help families in need during the holiday season. Each year – with your support – we help hundreds of families by providing each of their children, ages 16 and younger, with a Christmas gift.

Thank you for participating in any way you can!

There are several ways you can help:

“Adopt” a Family: Purchase a gift for each child in a family or for several families! Click the ‘Adopt a family’ button to see the list of children and their Christmas wishes and make your commitment.

Volunteer: Sign up for a shift in December to accept gifts, to organize gifts, to help with gift pick up, or to provide treats for all the busy volunteers! Sign up here.


Last year, friends like you provided hundreds of children with Christmas gifts! But there are still hundreds of children who need your help!

Help make a family’s Christmas wishes come true! It is more than giving presents; it is giving a family joyful holiday memories for years to come!
