Christmas in July Helps Broward’s Homeless Children Prepare for School

Please Support Christmas in July

One of the most devastating consequences of homelessness is the impact it can have on a child's education. Frequent school transfers and the stigma associated with living in a shelter add to great hardship for these children. Many begin the school year with no backpacks and few, if any, school supplies or new clothes.

Show Broward County’s children, newborn to 19 years that you care! Support Christmas in July, an annual initiative to help homeless children in our community. The Christmas in July collection drive helps school-age children get ready for a new school year, and also provides for homeless children under the age of 5. The collection drive culminates with a day of fun activities and food, and the children receive the items that have been prepared for them.
