Pajamas, a book and a toy

Christmas Presents Wrapped in Pink paper under a Holiday tree

Turning Points is the organization that, last year, needed suitcases and knapsacks for the foster children they serve. You guys really came through.

This year, they are slightly more ambitious:

It’s not too early to start thinking about giving the gift of Brighter Holidays.

Each holiday season, Turning Points works with individuals, corporations and community partners to collect gifts, pajamas and books for children who need it most.

Last year, donors like you provided gifts to over 1,000 children. This year the need is even greater. Turning Points has 3,100 children participating in various programs and we intend to give each child a new pair of pajamas, a book and a toy for the holidays.  Your help will make a difference.

The children who will receive gifts from Brighter Holidays are some of the neediest children in Philadelphia.  We hope that you will give these children Brighter Futures in 2015. 


Brighter Holidays is a toy drive for 3,100 of Philadelphia’s neediest kids — the children we serve at Turning Points. That’s a lot of smiling faces. We are trying to get pajamas, a gift and a book for every child on our list.


Our wrapping parties are a lot of fun. Join other volunteers from December 5th to 12th.  Come with your family or co-workers — groups are encouraged! To volunteer, please contact Monika at or 215-901-5111.


You can create Brighter Futures by supporting programs that serve our families. Your donations create a lot of success stories, including this one recently in the Philadelphia Inquirer. It’s easy to donate through our secure website. Your gift will be applied to where it is needed most.
