2020 Holiday Gift Drive

Help us bring the
magic of Christmas to children in crisis.

When a community comes together to make a difference,
magic happens. Year after year, countless members of the community have rallied together to bring Christmas gifts to those children who may normally not experience Christmas. Typically, BFP collects gifts for approximately 1700 children in need.

How can you help? Contact to receive a child’s wishlist for Christmas, set up a donation box for new toys at your place of business, or donate directly to our fund for Christmas presents.

Beginning a new chapter

I praise your work and that of your organization all the time. I really felt like without your intervention I could have ended up in jail or dead. I feel like I am beginning a new chapter in my life and I am proud of who I am and what I have achieved.

We act as a team

We have seen so many improvements to our system over the years; improvements that have resulted in less children in care which translates to lower numbers of abuse, neglect and abandonment. Working closely with our abuse prevention, foster care and adoption partners, along with our many service providers, we act as a team to achieve our mission.

We wanted to make a difference…

We wanted to make a difference and share the stability of our family with others. We have been foster parents now for eight years and currently have our 24th and 25th foster children in our home.

BFP has been a real blessing…

Our hearts were guided to help children so we became a recently foster family. BFP has been a real blessing to work with in this effort and we appreciate that their hearts are truly dedicated to the kids.
