Be a Santa for children and families throughout Philadelphia!

Episcopal Community Services is collecting Christmas gift cards for 600 children in our afterschool enrichment and mentorship programs. With your support, we can make sure every child in our community opens whatever gift they wish for. Toys, games, musical instruments, cold-weather gear, and more. 

This holiday season, please consider helping families get the perfect presents for under their trees. And spread the word! Click here to find an announcement you can use in your Sunday bulletin or your weekly email.

Here’s how you can help:

Give a check. Add “Christmas Gift Cards” in the memo line and send to: Episcopal Community Services; 225 S. 3rd Street; Philadelphia, PA 19106

Make an online donation. Visit and list “Christmas Gift Cards” in the comments box below your credit card information. 

Give gift cards from Target or Walmart. Choose the option to have them shipped and sent to: Episcopal Community Services; 225 S. Third Street; Philadelphia, PA 19106

Santa can’t be late, so please participate by December 10th.
