Provide an opportunity for children of need to buy Christmas presents for their family. The child has a volunteer shopper and uniformed "hero". They're taught to buy for their family.

Since 1999, the JOY Foundation has taken thousands of children Christmas shopping for their families by pairing them up with a volunteer shopper and a uniformed "Hero" from the community.

We need your time, talent, treasure and touch.
