2023 Christmas Book and Gift Card Drive!

Volunteer Manager Sy Jones with the child of a Samaritan participant

It’s not too late to help make our Next Step participants’ family Christmas and Kwanzaa celebrations a little more joyous through our holiday book and gift card drive!

This year, we’re focusing on children of participants and participants who have no children. Our goal is to provide all children 12 years of age and under with a book and, if possible, a $25 gift card. Teenaged children of participants and adult participants with no children will each receive a $25 gift card. Adults with children will not receive gifts of their own.  

To order children’s books from Samaritan’s suggested Christmas/Kwanzaa book list on Amazon, click this link or use the QR code below.

Just remember that all books as well as gift cards need to be dropped off or ordered for delivery by Monday, December 11 to Samaritan Ministry’s NW office, 1516 Hamilton Street, NW, Washington, DC 20011, attention Sy Jones, Volunteer Manager.

Preferred retailers for the cards are Target, Walmart, and Giant.

We are also seeking to replenish our supply of Gift Cards for 2024 as our post-pandemic participant numbers grow! Beyond our Christmas needs, please consider providing extra grocery gift cards in denominations of $25 — and thank you in advance for promoting this drive through your place of worship and other channels!
