Holiday Drive

Your holiday donation can make the winter holidays a little brighter for the children and families we serve who are recovering from abuse.

We hope to continue our tradition, and provide a light, celebratory holiday environment for our clients during December. If it is in your capacity to help this year, we would be especially grateful for the items listed below. We are especially in need of gift cards for our Kristi House teens.

Last year more than 1,500 children and their families received services from Kristi House. Services have remained 100% free to families since founding, critical since most of the families seen at Kristi House are very low income, do not have insurance and have no other place to turn for help. In our 24 years of service, we have treated 18,750 children and trained 120,000+ adults, children and professionals.

Toys, Gifts, Games

Particularly for the ‘tweens, ages 9 – 12


Funds to help provide food, supplies, gift cards, etc.

Gift Cards

Work best for Kristi House teenagers

Non-perishable Food

Dry, canned and packaged food for holiday baskets (for pantry items, click here.)


Over half of all children seen at Kristi House are 13 and older. For these teenagers, we find gift cards work best, or some of these gift ideas:
  • Games: Jenga, Mancala, other board/card games
  • Journals: agendas, calendars, coloring books for calming and mediation
  • Art Supplies: colored pencils, paint, brushes, sketch pads
  • Beauty Products: makeup, lotion, perfume
  • Tech Gadgets: headphones, USB drives, chargers, portable chargers, phone cases
  • Accessories: purses, bags, wallets, tote bags, sunglasses

Drop-Off: Please drop by Kristi House (1265 NW 12th Ave. Miami, FL 33136) with your donation anytime Monday through Friday, 8 am – 7 pm, or on Saturdays from 8 am – 1 pm. Please call if you cannot get to us and need a pickup and we’ll arrange a pick up.

Deadline: We ask to have all donations by 12/6, to begin distribution on 12/9. The sooner the better so we can start sorting and organizing toys.
