Bringing smiles to the faces of children at Christmas...
Christmas Assistance Program
Assistance requests will be accepted until October 26, 2018.
The purpose of the Christmas Assistance Program, offered by
Santa’s Elves of Indy, is to provide Christmas gifts to those
children whose families are currently experiencing a financial
hardship during the holiday season. Our main focus is to help
those families that are unable to receive assistance through
other area programs that are income restricted. While we do
not restrict the income of families being assisted, we do
evaluate each case individually and prioritize each family based
on the severity of their need. Please read below for assistance
