If giving back is part of your holiday traditions, Canopy has a variety of ways you can get involved and give the Gift of JOY and HOPE to children and families across Mississippi.
Stockings and Stuffers
Every child should have their very own stocking to enjoy on Christmas morning. Provide a child with some necessities and holiday cheer in a brightly colored stocking. Sign up here to get started!
24 Nights of Christmas – Delivered
Nestled in their pajamas, our children find joy in hearing a story of hope during a nightly storytime throughout the 24 Nights of Christmas. This year, while social distancing, you can bring joy to a child by delivering a favorite holiday book to be read by our staff; along with treats, craft sets, coloring sheets or games for our children. Santa will not object to you being one of his many helpers. Sign up by clicking the button below. (Jackson or Vicksburg)
Holiday Party – Delivered
Who doesn’t love a holiday party? This year, you can provide joy to the children at Canopy by supplying treats, activities and games to enjoy a fun-filled holiday celebration. Simply deliver the party food, beverages and activity supplies and we will handle the rest. Sign up here to get started! (Jackson or Vicksburg)
South Mississippi Child Advocacy Center Gift Drive
Gratitude is the foundation of joy and showing gratitude by helping others is a great way to get into the holiday spirit. To help spread joy to local children, Canopy’s South Mississippi Child Advocacy Center (SMCAC) is encouraging the local community to get involved with its Annual Gift Drive. To help grant a child’s wish with a virtual purchase from the SMCAC Amazon Smile Wish List and we’ll do the rest!
