Top Organizations and Charities for Kids
The holidays are the prime time for giving back - and what better way to do it than by supporting a kids charity? These organizations offer some of the coolest holiday programs for kids, and all of them provide money to worthwhile causes. So if you've got a few extra bucks, some volunteer time, or extra clothes and supplies laying around the house, here's where you can send them. And if we missed an organization you love working with during the holidays, please spread the word and nominate it here! - Christina Couch

Every day is a holiday at this Salt Lake City-based nonprofit. This organization offers emergency shelter, healthcare, dental care, arts, and recreational-therapy programs to children up to age 18 who have been through abuse, neglect, or abandonment. At the Christmas Box House, a Christmas tree is decorated with stuffed toys laying underneath it year-round for the kids. Children can stay at the house, in a safe environment, until their regular homes have been stabilized, or appropriate placement with kin or in foster care has been found. The holiday season is really when The Christmas Box gets going. Through the organization’s Giving Tree Project, approximately 12,700 children throughout Utah have received gifts and holiday clothing. The organization also supports a number of international programs that provide supplies for at-risk children throughout the world.
