if you could wish for anything,
What would it be?

We asked our kids that same question, and this year we compiled some of those wishes that you and your family can grant for kids and families this holiday season.

Your gift will allow kids to feel safe afterschool, to have a space to “be me”, to have crafts, to go on field trips, to have a community surrounded in love, hope, and so much more.

And if all of these wishes are granted, St. Mark is committed to using your gifts to continue to help area kids and families in the best way possible.

Choose your special holiday present from St. Mark Youth Enrichment and give a gift that will help kids and families this year and beyond.

With Warmest Wishes,

stories of impact

Kids now more than ever, need a safe space and parents need to know their children are being taken care of with care and compassion.

Here are a few examples of the ways St. Mark is working to support kids and families in our area.

JAKIRAH is amazing. When asked what she would do if she could do anything, she shared she would go to the store to get nice things for all her St. Mark friends.

MYKEERA was named kid hero of the year in 2021 & hosted a video tour of a day at St. Mark. She dreams of some day being a tv host.

SUMMER is the season of heroes--the season kids believe in themselves and learn to soar.
