2,918 SMILES DELIVERED LAST YEAR

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


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!
