CADA's Holiday Giving Program


Each year, generous donors like you help bring some holiday joy to the individuals and families we serve!

How does it work?

Adults and children that are working with CADA create a holiday wish list. At CADA, we do our best to provide basic necessities to the people we serve, so we encourage families to put items on their wish list that are truly wishes - things that will bring them joy! Each wish list is then matched with a donor who purchases gifts, helping to make the holidays a bit brighter!

When you contact us, we will as you some questions about the types of gifts you want to purchase and how many people you want to shop for. Then we will match you with a wish list to shop for!

On average, it costs about $50 to fulfill a wish list. You can shop for one person or an entire family!

Gifts can be dropped off at CADA's Mankato office Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., or by appointment. We request that gifts are delivered unwrapped and are brought in no later than Friday, December 20th.

We also appreciate donations of gift bags, tissue paper, wrapping paper, and other wrapping supplies!
