About the Happy Holidays Fund

Girl with Present

The Happy Holidays Fund supports families that are especially in need during the holiday season. Help make their holidays a little brighter by building a Happy Holidays Fundraising page.

All donations support children and families at Kennedy Krieger by providing needed items during the holidays and all year long. Your donation will be used to support three initiatives that have a direct impact on families.

Warm Winter Wishes Family Adoption Program

The Warm Winter Wishes Family Adoption Program helps provide children and families with items needed to stay warm during the cold weather.  This program provides winter coats, warm pajamas, socks, winter boots, hats, gloves and blankets. 

Institute Wish List

Kennedy Krieger maintains a Wish List of items selected by staff members to help enhance therapy sessions, classroom activities, and medical evaluations and treatment. Your donation will help purchase items that foster development, encourage independence, and enrich communication for our patients and students. 

Helping Families All Year Long

Your gift will help children and families not just during the holidays, but all year long. Donations raised through the Happy Holidays Fund will be used to purchase needed items for familes throughout the year, such as gas and grocery gift cards, toys, games, crafts, baby clothing, bath items, diapers, educational materials, electronics, cribs, and strollers.

Your support is the key to unlocking a child's potential this holiday season!
