Christmas Smiles Foundation

HISTORY:
Our family began delivering Christmas gifts for needy children 40 years ago. We collected toys that were in need of repair, we painted, glued and polished anything we could salvage. We also included food products, citrus and items we thought less fortunate children could use and with the help of Santa we delivered everything on Christmas morning. This continued over the years on a very small scale. A terrible tragedy hit our family in 1999 when Aaron Lee Farrier died of SIDS at the age of four months. His parents began delivering gifts to Head Start with the help of family members who donated toys in Aaron's honor. Our family decided to combine our efforts and Christmas Smiles Foundation was born.

We are a non-profit in the State of Arizona and every pennie received is used to purchase gifts for the children.....we have no overhead and we take no salaries. We have delivered to several Head Start Programs over the years, and have delivered to Avondale Head Start for the past three years. Each year the enrollment increases and our funds seem to decrease. We were informed recently that we have 247 children enrolled this year.

CONTACT US: P O Box 1486 Avondale, AZ 85323
602-403-1575

HEAD START is a preschool program for children 3 - 5 years old.  Childen who qualify or this program are homeless, in foster care or are at or below the federal poverty level.



OUR NEEDS:
Small toys for 3-5 year olds that are gender neutral, coloring books, crayons, combs, brushes, toothpaste, flash cards, & money.

VOLUNTEER:
Each gift is lovingly wrapped by volunteers. This year Ballet Folklorico Esperanza carefully wrapped over 1000 gifts as part of their dedication of giving back to the community in which they reside.
