2023 Wish Upon A Star Gift Drive For Local Foster Youth

2023 Wish Upon A Star Gift Drive For Local Foster Youth

Each year, Partnership for Strong Families (PFSF) works with community partners and donors to provide holiday “wishes” to over 1,200 local children in foster care. Wish Upon a Star offers an opportunity to add some joy to their holiday.

Student Life partners with PFSF each year to help members of the SF community sponsor 50 stars. Click here to see available stars. Each star includes information about a child in local foster care and three of their wishes for the holidays.

Sponsors agree to purchase at least two of the three items (around $50 total) but are welcome to donate more. If you cannot find a specific gift listed on the star, you are welcome to substitute another age-appropriate gift. Donations should be unwrapped with a copy of the child’s star securely attached to each gift. Please drop off donations by Monday, November 27 at 4 p.m in S-245 on SF’s Northwest campus. 

To sign up, e-mail with the following information:

1: The name and Wish ID number of the child you’d like to sponsor.

2: Let us know how you would like your sponsorship to be shared on this site, for example:

  • Sponsored by [Individual] and Family
  • Sponsored by [Organization/Department]
  • Sponsored by Anonymous

We’ll send you a confirmation message with your star attached and a couple follow-up reminders. We thank all the members of the SF community who have supported this annual tradition, and warmly welcome any new donors who are joining this effort!
