Holiday Help

Help bring holiday magic to our neediest families.

Every child should be able to enjoy the magic of the holidays. That’s why the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows has Holiday Help. Holiday Help provides Christmas gifts and much-needed items to local Club families in need. Each year with match dozens of families in Reno, Sparks, Fernley with generous adopters who provide toys, clothing and household supplies.

Most families that receive help through the program are Club families on a very limited income or are homeless. The children range in age from 5-18. All are currently enrolled at the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows and have attended the Club at least 52 times in the last year. Each family goes through a pre-screening process before their application is approved for the Holiday Help program, so we know these are families in need of assistance.

To adopt a Reno-Sparks family for the 2021 Holiday Help program please contact Kathleen Vanderziel via email at

Club families applying for the program should contact Anne Studebaker, Family Plus Director at (775) 360-2401 or

Recipients of Holiday Help must have one or more children currently enrolled in the club.
