This year we are anxiously preparing for the 36th Annual "Holiday Magic for Kids" outreach to the Homeless children of San Diego. It will be held on December 16th with doors opening at Noon, at the Golden Hall, Community Concourse, 202 C Street, San Diego 92101

Our annual Christmas party for needy kids has become a San Diego tradition. Our organization was incorporated as a nonprofit 501c(3) 33-0358828 in 1979. We started giving 25 gifts to random kids living in the streets. Last year at Golden Hall Downtown San Diego, we drew over 2,0000 low-income and homeless children and their families.  They received food, wrapped gifts and a lot of memories.

We are always looking for volunteers to help prepare for the event by doing children's book drives or collecting food items needed to give needy families and children. Volunteers needed at Golden Hall the evening before and the morning of the event.

 List of Needs 2017:

  2. 4000 candy canes
  3. Wrapping materials, scissors, tape, stickers to mark presents
  4. Each gift needs ID. B-6 for Boy, 6 years old; G-6 for girl
