Jacob's Gift is a registered, 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer-run organization for children with Special Needs and their families. The party was originally founded in 1995 by Jacob’s aunt and grandmother, and is currently directed by a group of moms. Jacob's Gift provides an annual Christmas Party where Special Needs children of any age can visit with Santa, sing, dance, make crafts and decorate cookies in an accepting and welcoming environment.
Through our party we strive to promote the acceptance, understanding and inclusion of people with Special Needs into our society. This begins by inviting volunteers from the local high schools to assist in interactive crafts, cookie decorating, dancing and singing. Many of our volunteers dress in costume as Prince and Princesses welcoming each guest and dancing the night away. We have been blessed in that the magic of this evening touches not only the guests, but every volunteer present.
We began our first party with three guests in attendance and we now have over two hundred and fifty guests. Our home is in Menifee, California, however we have guests from all over California.
We are happy to announce that Santa and his helpers are currently planning this year’s Jacob's Gift Christmas party. We are all looking forward to seeing your very special faces in December. Please check back for more information on the R.S.V.P. page. Remember that you must be invited by Jacob's Gift and R.S.V.P. to attend this event.
We would like thank Wilson Creek Winery for their continuous support & the donation of their beautiful facility again for this year's party. Should you have any questions, comments or suggestions please contact Jacob's Gift directly via our contact section.
