Calling All Holiday Elves!

New Moms’ annual Christmas event is our most anticipated family celebration of the year! We are continuing to host “Operation Santa” — in which we collect donated gifts for families and distribute everything safely to their homes. We need you to make this year a success!

Help ensure every family in our programs has a special Christmas by donating to the gift drive or volunteering to pack the gift deliveries. Learn more about ways to get involved down below!

Donated and need a tax receipt? Please click here to fill out this form, and your digital receipt will be emailed to you.

Donate Gifts:

Help us get presents under the tree for 190 moms and 237 kids. Every young mom gets to select the perfect gifts for her family from the collection, which are then dropped off by New Moms staff!

IMPORTANT: Donations are due by Monday, November 27th at our Austin location (5317 W. Chicago Ave., Chicago IL) NOTE ON GIFT CARDS: If you’d like to buy a gift card, we are only seeking PHYSICAL gift cards of $25.


Volunteer to Pack Gifts:

We need a lot of volunteer help in November and early December to pull off this year’s Operation Santa.

Click here to schedule your shift today! Shift dates/times are extremely flexible. Duties consist of unboxing donated gifts, sorting, packing them up for families, and cleaning up afterwards.

Email Jane Rasweiler at for any questions.
