Bring joy to a child at a time they need it most. Please consider being a Christmas Champion and help give the approximately 100 children who call Marygrove their home the holiday experience they will always remember.

Thanks to the outpouring of love and support by our generous community, all of our residents have been adopted for Christmas and they will receive the items they put on their wish list! We are still looking for your help to turn Christmas dreams into a reality for the young people who call Marygrove their home. Outlined below are the simple ways you can bring Christmas to our youth:

  • Make a financial gift to help cover costs of presents, outings, and festivities for our kids during this Christmas season
    • A donation of $150 will pay for the gifts on one child’s wish list
    • A donation of $2,500 will pay for the gifts for all the children in one residential cottage
  • Purchase items or host a collection for general wish list items for our cottages/programs. Drop them off, unwrapped, at Marygrove by December 15th. Contact Annie Lorenz to secure a wish list.

Funds raised in excess of Christmas needs will still benefit the service of our children and will be used in area of greatest need to ensure our kids receive the best care possible.

For additional information or if your organization is interested in hosting a Christmas drive for the children of Marygrove, please contact Annie Lorenz at or 314.830.6249.
