The Board of Child Care (BCC) strives to provide enriching experiences throughout the year, but especially during the holiday season. With your help, we can provide our youth and their families with truly treasured memories by showing the Love of God in a tangible way.

We work with our kids to thoughtfully write out their wish lists, which total approximately $100 per child. Here are two ways you can help make a child’s wish list come true this year:

  • Gift Sponsorship (most helpful). If your congregation or group would like to support our youth through a monetary donation, we will use these funds to buy the specific items requested by a child.
    • All monetary gifts are needed by December 3rd, 2021.
      • This allows BCC enough time to order all items prior to the children leaving for home visits later in the month.
    • To give online, scroll down this page and complete your donation via the online form. All checks can be mailed to Board of Child Care, Attn: Christmas Gift Drive, 3300 Gaither Road, Baltimore, MD 21244
  • Gift Shopping – We know there are donors who treasure personally buying gifts for children. BCC can provide donors with a child or living unit’s specific wish list. Please note that this is a very popular volunteer and donor program and we do historically run out of wish lists each year.  Requests are filled on a first come, first served basis.
    • To obtain a wish list, email before November 22, 2021.
    • Each child’s wish list will total approximately $100.
    • All gifts are needed in hand at BCC by December 3rd
    • Aaron Andrews will send you instructions when he distributes your wish list.

Thank you for taking time to consider supporting our youth this Holiday season and making hearts and homes a little fuller. All donations to BCC are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Donations BCC receives above and beyond what is needed to fulfill each child’s wish list will be used where most needed. If you have any questions or would like to become a sponsoring partner, please contact Aaron Andrews, Church & Community Engagement Manager, at or (410) 865-0367.

Thank you for helping us to fulfill our purpose of enriching communities, one family at a time.

**All gifts made through this form will be put directly towards our Christmas Gift Drive/Christmas Giving appeal.**
