Holiday Angels 2023 Thank You LayerSlider

Christmas is traditionally a time of joy and merriment. But, for many Big Bend Cares’ clients—who are also parents— it can be a time of worry and extreme stress.  Many of our clients struggle to afford necessities like nutritious food, keeping the utilities on, keeping up with rent, reliable transportation, and medical care.

Buying their children gifts for the holidays may be an impossible burden or result in extreme financial and emotional strain.


Thank you to everyone who participated in Holiday Angels this year! Your sponsorship of these 300 children made such an impact on our community in 2023, and we’re forever grateful to have your support. Check our social media for photos and updates, and we hope you’ll join us for Holiday Angels 2024!

How does Holiday Angels work?

  • The program matches community members with our clients’ children in need.
  • Families range in size from 1 to 10 kids and for each child, this program may be the only time that they receive new toys or new clothes that fit and are meant just for them.
  • To sponsor a family with 1 to 10 children in the home, please complete the form below.  
  • You will then be sent information about the child’s or children’s clothing sizes and interests to help you pick out their gifts.
  • Drop off the wrapped presents or have them shipped to the Big Bend Cares’ office by December 11th and know that you’ve made a positive impact on a family’s Holiday Season!
  • No time to shop for gifts? Big Bend Cares’ staff is happy to shop for you! Just click here ( to make a Holiday Angels donation. Please be sure to say “Holiday Angels” in the Comment Section.
