Holiday Campaign

Donations of new toys or clothing items may be dropped off to EHYFS November 4 – December 6 during normal office hours.

Family Participation:

The holiday season is just around the corner, and once again East Haddam Youth & Family Services is preparing for our annual Holiday Campaign.  Families that require assistance providing gifts for their children (birth to age 18) are encouraged to participate in this program.  Participants must live in the East Haddam/Moodus area.

To register for this program, parents/guardians must complete the attached application and provide proof of residency in the form of a household bill addressed to them, dated within the last 30 days (for example utility bill or rent/mortgage statement).  Completed applications and proof of residency must be received by EHYFS no later than November 19th

Families cannot be registered for this program until the required documents have been received.

Parents/guardians will be notified by phone when their packages are complete.  All gifts must be picked up by December 20.  Gifts remaining at EHYFS after the 20th will not be available for the holidays.

Please contact EHYFS (860-873-3296) with any additional questions regarding this program.  We wish you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season! 

Holiday Application 2019


On behalf of the staff and Board of Directors at East Haddam Youth & Family Services, I would like to extend our thanks to the local families, businesses, civic, community and religious organizations who donated to our 2018 Holiday Campaign. This holiday season we were able to assist 49 local families by providing gifts to 100 children.

Your kindness and generosity made the holiday season more enjoyable for families in our community. Thank you for your continued support and dedication to the youth and families of East Haddam and Moodus.
