Wish List

My Path Forward Donations

Holiday Wish Lists

Happy Holidays! Each year, the young people enrolled in My Path Forward are asked to create holiday wish lists that our wonderful donors can help to fulfill. The young people in My Path Forward have aged out of foster care and otherwise would not receive any gifts during the holiday season. With your help, My Path Forward strives to make memorable holiday seasons for our young people who don’t always have happy memories of this time of year.

To view the wish list items, click here. You’ll create an account on SignUpGenius and then will be able to sign up for each item(s) you’d like to purchase. The deadline to drop gifts off at our office is December 10th. Please contact Julie Mitchell at 804-353-0191 ext.100 to schedule your drop off time.

If you would like other ways to support the young people enrolled in My Path Forward, consider making a monthly gift. This would go towards the expenses of keeping the program running.  A small monthly gift can have a long term impact! You can set this up automatically online with the Donate Now button, or call for more information.

Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Donations

Holiday Wish Lists

CHS is honored to be one of three Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program sites in Virginia. This signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption brings children waiting to be adopted from foster care one step closer to safe, loving and permanent homes.

The WWK youth listed do not have family support. So, the items that are so generously given by you are their holiday gifts. To view the wish list items, click here. You’ll create an account on SignUpGenius and then will be able to sign up for each item(s) you’d like to purchase. The deadline to drop gifts off at our office is December 10th. Please contact Julie Mitchell at 804-353-0191 ext.100 to schedule your drop off time.


Adoptive Family Donation Ideas

During the adoption process, parents and children spend time visiting and bonding with one another. We would appreciate donations of gift cards/certificates for family-friendly outings such as movie theaters, bowling alleys, SkateNation, Jumpology, Sky Zone, Chuck E Cheese, Science Museum of Virginia, Metro Richmond Zoo, or local restaurants. You can learn more about how CHS supports our adoptive families by clicking here.
