Here at Santa's Little Helpers, Inc., we are driven by a single goal; to empower foster children. We were formed in 2017 to help meet the basic needs of foster children while providing activities and materials that promote character building. 


Our mission is to help build the self-esteem and confidence of foster children by building a foundation of literacy, personal growth, and development.


Our core principles are generosity, gratitude, hard work, kindness, and respect. Our vision is to help foster children thrive while in foster care and beyond by instilling our core principles through our care packages, programs, and services.

Our organization always appreciates the generosity and involvement of people like you, with every contribution going towards making Santa's Little Helpers, Inc. an even better nonprofit organization.  We offer several ways for you to participate.  

1. Organize a donation drive with the people in your neighborhood, at your job, or you can host one yourself.  Please email us at to schedule your donation drive today!

2. Select us as your charity at Kroger or on the NextDoor App. Shop our wish list at Carmichael's Bookstore.  

3.  You can donate a gently used Christmas tree between Sept. 15 and Dec. 1. Call us for more details.
