Are you looking for a way to make a difference this holiday season? Participate in our annual “Kids Can Give” holiday gift drive!


For over 25 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities and our community partners have been collecting donated gifts during the holiday season to distribute to the thousands of kids we serve each year. Through Kids Can Give, each Club member has the opportunity to shop at a holiday “store” set up at their local Boys & Girls Club in December, where they can buy donated gifts for $2-$5 to bring home to their families. Donations from the kids will support a youth-driven holiday celebration at each Club.

It is an incredible experience for all involved to see the excitement in our kids as they think of their loved ones and shop for special holiday gifts. Gifts are wrapped on-site with the help of staff and volunteers and are sent home with the kids just in time for the holidays.

Please consider donating to the “Kids Can Give” program to help a child fulfill their holiday wish!


You can help by collecting gifts at your place of business, or by volunteering at our Club holiday stores in December to help distribute gifts to families! Please deliver donated gifts to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities Administrative Center no later than December 13th: 690 Jackson Street, Saint Paul, MN 55130

Financial donations are also accepted and will be used to purchase additional gifts and wrapping paper. 100% of gifts donated will be given to our Club members and their families. Please make checks out to: Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities.
