Holiday 2022
Get Ready for Wish List 2022!

What Kind of Elf are You?

Vista Maria's Holiday Wish List Program is a fun and rewarding way to make the holidays warm and wonderful for our youth!
Each year, our volunteer "elves" generously go above and beyond by providing stocking stuffers for each young person, fulfilling individual wish lists, and getting everything organized, wrapped, and festive in our Vista Boutique. We hope you'll join us!

Angel Elf
Sponsor the Wish List Program by providing gift cards to stores like Target, Amazon, Kohl's, or Old Navy, which allow us to fulfill last-minute wishes and meet our kids' needs all year long!
Gift cards are our MOST needed item right now!

Stocking Elf
Help fill our residents’ stockings with extra goodies by purchasing items from our stocking stuffer list. You can find these items at most stores, at bargain prices, and on our Amazon and Target wish lists.

Shopper Elf
This is a great holiday activity for families or groups to do together! Grant the wishes of an individual or several children by purchasing all four items on their Wish Lists. Shoppers can expect to spend about $200 to $300 on each youth’s list.
  • Most 2022 lists are already adopted, but a few are available!

Workshop Elf
Our Vista Maria Boutique and offices become the epicenter of holiday cheer every December! Help sort, wrap gifts, and organize “Santa’s Workshop” here on Vista Maria’s campus! Volunteer times are typically 10 am – 6 pm, Monday-Friday.
