​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Last Day to Donate: June 23, 2023

​​​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, school supplies and/or new clothes.

Show Broward County’s children, newborns to 18 years old that you care! Christ​mas in July is an annual initiative to help homeless children in our community. ​Residents can make monetary donations through PayPal on the Christmas in July website. ​If you are purchasing items on Amazon, you can select Christmas In July, Inc. as your charity and order on Amazon Smile. A​ percentage of your purchase will be donated to Christmas in July.
