2021 Dear Santa Volunteer Interest Form

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Dear Santa!

For more than 20 years, the Center has provided holiday gifts for children up to 18 years of age through the Dear Santa program. Children in need served by the Center and their siblings receive donated gifts. Last year, the Center provided gifts and holiday parties to more than 2,300 East Tennessee children and families in need. This was made possible individuals and organizations in the community who participate as a sponsor in the Dear Santa program.

All of our children for 2020 have been sponsored! Thank you to everyone who has signed up to participate this year. If you would like to receive information for our 2021 Dear Santa program, please fill out the form above.

For additional questions, or if you or your group is interested in organizing a toy drive for Dear Santa, please contact Rebecca McKnight at

Thank you for helping to provide children with the most need and the least resources the opportunity to experience a happy, unforgettable holiday season!

If you want to help, but cannot sponsor a wish list, you can purchase items through our Amazon Wish List to contribute to children who have a need, but may not have received a sponsor! Check out the Amazon Wish List here.
