Holiday Wishlist Eligibility

Eligible families either live and/or participate in CAN's programs related to the following communities:

  • Completing this form does not guarantee that CAN will be able to provide your family with holiday gifts, though CAN does its best to match you and your child or children's preferences with potential donors.


  • Each gift must be valued at $25 or less. When listing a clothing item, please include the expected size of the child in mid-December.


  • Due to funding and resource limitations, participation is limited to specific CAN service areas and neighborhoods.
