caring & sharing
Make the holidays bright for Irving students in need!
There’s not much in life that compares to the joy that comes from giving during the holiday season, especially when the end result is a child who feels included and appreciated. You can be a part of the magic when you join Irving Schools Foundation in Caring & Sharing, our annual holiday gift drive and distribution program benefiting students in Irving ISD.
How Caring & Sharing Works:
ISF partners with community businesses, organizations, and individuals to adopt students and grant their wishes. Gifts may be purchased by the adopter and sent to the ISF office, or donors may give a monetary donation and we will do the shopping for you! Gifts are distributed at a magical drive-through experience where families enjoy live music, a greeting from Santa and Ms. Claus, and other fun surprises. Starting in November of every year, we open our program to prospective Community Leaders. More details to come for our 2023 Caring & Sharing event!
Wish lists available for adoption!
If you are a business or organization and would like to receive multiple physical ornaments, please contact us!
Gifts due to the ISF Office.
