The week before Christmas and all through the warehouse ...

...the staff and volunteers are working hard to fill every wish for Magic of Christmas in time for our partner agencies to get them to their clients and under their tree by Christmas morning. 

We see magic at the warehouse all year long. 

We see it in the excitement of a child who gets a birthday bag and gift for their birthday. 

We see the face of expecting parents when they receive a newborn basket for their first child. 

This year we've seen the faces of students when they received headphones so they could communicate with their classmates. 

This year we've seen the faces of parents receiving cleaning kits, diapers and toiletries while they struggle with unemployment.

We see the faces of the homeless when they receive a winter coat, boots, hat and gloves. 

The magic is gratitude at being given something they need when they need it.

We see it in abundance at the holidays when hundreds of donors volunteer to help hundreds of people in need receive a gift for Christmas. 

So from the hundreds of people who you will never meet but who you helped we say Thank You! Thank you for the amazing support in this trying time for so many. We could never do it without you and your incredible support of our community.

Thank you for helping us put some magic in so many lives this holiday.
Help us reach our end of year appeal goal!
What a year! One of the things that made us at The Wish Project proudest this year is that we never fully shut our doors because of COVID. The need for our assistance did not stop - in fact this is when our clients need us most, and we have been there for them. We can be there for our community only because of your support. With a different kind of holiday season ahead of all of us, we need your support more than ever.  

Please read on for the rest of the letter our Executive Director, Alyce Moore wrote about our end of year appeal. 

We are thankful for your support to serve our mission and our clients!

We have recently made some changes in the way we are tracking our incoming donations. As we use this new technology, we ask for your patience and understanding. We have discovered a few errors that may have resulted in some donors not receiving a thank you letter. Please
know that your gift was received and very much appreciated. If you need documentation for tax purposes, please email .

As always, we are continuing to receive donations shipped anonymously to the warehouse. We are so very grateful for all of these donations. 
We will be accepting donations at the warehouse until Wednesday, 12/23 at 3pm. Because we will then be closed for 9 days we will not post a wish list this week so that we don't risk packages being delivered during the time the warehouse is closed.
