The holidays are a time of sharing traditions and generosity.  Members and volunteers of 9 H.U.G.S. join together with Santa Claus to distribute toys to children the days preceding Christmas.


  • Foster Children

    In partnership with the Edwin Gould Foundation, who offers financial aid for educational purposes to children of low-income families, foster homes, etc., 9 H.U.G.S. collects and distributes hundreds of toys, love, and holiday spirit to children of struggling families.

  • Hospitalized Children
    In partnership with the Blue Child Project, and a very jolly Santa Clause, we collect and

    personally distribute toys to children that find themselves in hospitals during the holidays.

  • Children of Low-Income families

    In partnership with Urban Upbound, who provides low-income families with financial aid throughout the year, 9 H.U.G.S. collects and distributes toys to children living in low-income housing units.

MISSION is dedicated to spreading aid and love wherever there is need. Understanding that despair has no borders, we organize, collaborate with, and mobilize our volunteers and donations to bring positive change and relief wherever it is needed.  Through our projects and success, we hope to create a cycle of philanthropy, inspiring everyone to “Help Us Give & Share” whenever we can.
