Christmas in July

​​​​Christmas in July Collection Drive

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 18 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 children under the age of 5. 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.
