The Cape Ann Kids Holiday Fund supports children in our community by providing gift cards for families who are struggling financially. The cards allow families to purchase holiday gifts, either locally or online, that might not be available through traditional toy drives.  

Action Inc., Pathways for Children, and Wellspring House, Inc. are proud to team up once again to fundraise and provide gift cards for 1,250 children living in Gloucester, Rockport, Manchester, Essex, and Ipswich.  

By making a donation, you’ll help ease stress, provide comfort, and create magical memories for families in our community!

Think this holiday season

For decades, Cape Ann’s non-profits have worked hard to bring cheer to all families over the holidays. Over the years we have served tens of thousands of families, providing toys, books, pajamas, and gift cards through our combined efforts.

In 2020, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to come together to form one giant effort to help local families in need. Last year we served more than 1,300 kids living in Gloucester, Rockport, Manchester, Essex, and Ipswich.

Inspired by this success, and with feedback from the families served, we are once again asking for your help to make sure everyone has a magical holiday in 2022.

Action Inc. works to build an equitable and resilient community by creating opportunities for all on Cape Ann. Action Inc. offers programs that bring positive change to people’s lives, including affordable housing, homelessness prevention, fuel assistance and energy efficiency programs, and job training and education.

Pathways for Children provides full-day, year-round education, support, programs, and activities for children and families impacted by economic and social inequality. Their programs serve more than 2,500 individuals from North Shore communities every year.

Wellspring inspires families and adults on the North Shore to achieve employment and financial security through stable housing, education, job training and career readiness.
