Host a Gift Card Drive

Gift cards are a great way to help the Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento meet the needs of the youth and families we serve. Not only do they enable us to take the kids on outings or for special meals during the holiday season. Gift cards give us the most flexibility to fulfill Christmas wishes, get  supplies for holiday decorations, allow our youth to attend special holiday event, and give seasonal treats. 

Gift cards can be donated via mail or dropped off at 3555 Auburn Blvd., Sacramento, CA 95821, Monday through Friday from 8:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. 

Host a DipJar

We are asking our community supporters to host our Dipjar this holiday season. Dipjar is an easy way for people and businesses to help support the Children’s Receiving Home by collecting cashless donations. When someone wants to make a donation all they have to do is insert their card into the Dipjar and then remove it to make a donation. If interested in hosting Dipjar please email
