Holiday Assistance Program

If you are in need of assistance this Holiday Season, please let us know by completing the online form below no later than November 18, 2022.  

Each year, the Office of the Chaplain assists families in the Wake Forest community who may not have the extra funds in their paycheck to provide traditional holiday meals and gifts for their family. Those who are under-resourced in our community face the stress of trying to meet basic needs year-round, and even more so during the holiday season. If you are in a position to do so, please consider taking part in this program.

Any staff member, office, or department who would like to participate in this year’s Holiday Assistance program by donating to the Chaplain’s Emergency Fund, may do so in one of the following ways:

  • Cash or check – bring to the Chaplain’s Office, Reynolda Hall #8
  • Online donation – use this link to submit a payment online
  • Payroll Deduction Form – fill out this form and submit to Gift Administration, Alumni Hall or email to Under “Pledge Distribution – Other” enter the amount you would like to donate and write in “Chaplain’s Emergency Fund” as the designation.
  • Gift cards – bring to the Chaplain’s Office, Reynolda Hall #8. If you choose this option, please make sure cards are at the amount of $10, $50, or $100. Pre-paid Visa, Walmart, or Target are preferred, but others are gladly accepted. Please also provide a gift card receipt taped to the gift card, showing that the card has been activated.
