This holiday season, help Inspirica once again deliver smiles to children in need!

For families struggling to make ends meet, the holiday season can be difficult. No parent should have to decide between providing basic necessities for their children and gifts for the holidays. Inspirica's Holiday Gift Collection benefits a number of local social service agencies to spread the holiday cheer to children in need across Fairfield County.

Please join us in making these families' dreams of a joyful holiday season come true!

In the event of surplus funds, the proceeds will support the general operations and mission of Inspirica, Inc – to break the cycle of homelessness by helping people achieve –  and maintain – permanent housing and stability in their lives.

What is Holiday Gift Collection?

Last year, Inspirica’s Holiday Gift Collection collected and distributed 6,000 gifts to 2,918 children.

Our goal is to ensure that struggling families in our community don't have to debate whether to spend their precious resources on necessities or gifts. No child should go without a gift during the holiday season!

This December, we once again hope to gather, organize, and deliver approximately 6,000 personalized, wrapped gifts to 3,000 children in Fairfield County (and beyond!) affected by homelessness, HIV/AIDS, and/or poverty. 


The Holiday Gift Collection (HGC) began in 1989 under the name “Bread & Roses” as a response to the plight of families living with HIV/AIDS in Bridgeport.  
During its first year, it collected 250 gifts for 30 families. 

We've grown a bit since then. It's now one of the largest programs of its kind!
