Share the Joy

Our goal is to provide a joyful holiday experience to all children in Northfield. At this time, the most impactful way our community can help support this goal is through monetary donations.

100% of donations go directly to helping provide a joyful holiday experience for kids in our community.

Due to COVID-19, this year’s donations will be used to purchase gift cards, which gives families the opportunity to select gifts their children will enjoy the most.

The Northfield community is made up of generous and thoughtful individuals, making it a truly unique place to live. We thank you for your support during this difficult time for so many people.
