Christmas Angels

Christmas Angels - gifts for Hampden children

Be an angel this Christmas for a child in Hampden. This year, we have two options for Christmas Angels:

“Adopt” a specific child and purchase items off their wishlist. Call the Center at 410-467-8710 to be matched. All gifts should be wrapped and dropped off to the Family Center by Monday, December 14.


Give $75 per child you want to “adopt” using the Donate button below, and Hampden Family Center will take care of the rest!
