Bright Holidays


Can you imagine not being able to buy Hanukkah or Christmas gifts for your children or loved ones? That is the unfortunate reality for many of our clients, but you can help! Choose which program works best for you and note the staff contact information and deadlines below.

Secret Shopper Program

This is a new component of the Bright Holidays program, which will enable JFS to help more families. If you are interested in an easy way to buy toys for children and/or gift cards for teens, this is a great option! You will purchase gifts from our Amazon Wish List and have them shipped directly to our office no later than December 11. If you would like a tax receipt, please check “this is a gift” and provide your name, address, and phone number in the “gift message” box.

Holiday Helper Program

Purchase toys and drop them off at JFS no later than December 18 for our pantry client families. Parents will choose gifts for their children right before the holidays when they come in to pick up their food packages. This option is great for last-minute shoppers or people who prefer to pick out items in stores. We can accept these donations during our regular business hours: Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Please note: we request unwrapped gifts so parents can be included in the gift giving process. Please consider including wrapping paper or gift bags so parents can wrap the gifts for their children. We believe in preserving our clients' dignity during a challenging time in their lives.

Monetary Donation Program

If you prefer, you can donate cash or gift cards in the form below to the program. Each year a volunteer does last-minute shopping to fill in missing gifts or gaps. Gift cards to grocery stores, Target, Walmart, or similar stores are also extremely helpful so our clients can purchase food, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and gasoline. Donate to this fund or drop off checks and gift cards to our office at 3201 South Tamarac Drive, Denver, CO 80231.
