Spirit of Giving Program


Family Search

The holidays are a magical time, especially for children. Many of us enjoy giving our kids gifts and watching their faces light up with joy. But not every parent has this opportunity. You can help bridge the gap by sponsoring Sun Prairie children for Christmas.

Search this database for a family to sponsor. If you plan to sponsor 1 child, please search for families with 1 child. Likewise, if you can help families with 2, 3, or more children, search for families with that many children. You may also use the Search box to find schools, children’s ages, and other keywords. When you find a family you would like to sponsor, click the "sponsor" link.

Once you sign up, you will receive an email with instructions on how to return the gifts on Wednesday, December 12 to the Sunshine Supper building (1632 W. Main St).

Thank you for your generous commitment to bringing joy and toys to children in Sun Prairie! To learn more about this program, click here.

Please note: If there are no families listed below, it means all families are currently sponsored. We will be adding new families. Continue to check back until December 1 ... or see below about donating a food basket instead.

Donate a Food Basket

The Sun Prairie Spirit of Giving Program provides both gifts and food to families in need in our community during the holiday season! We had a record 463 families - with 1,296 children -sign up this year! If there are no families left here to be sponsored for gifts PLEASE consider helping us collect enough food boxes and purchase more turkeys to give to all of these families as we did not plan for this record high. Fill out the "sign up" form to let us know if you can donate a food basket, so we plan accordingly for drop-off day. Food boxes and donations for purchasing turkeys can be dropped off on Wednesday, December 12 at the Sunshine Supper building, 1632 W. Main Street from 7:30 am to 10:30 am OR 3 pm to 7 pm.

Each box is made up of the following items -(approximately $35 cost):

Thank you for your generous commitment to bringing food and gifts to families in our community.
