Each year, the Office of the Chaplain assists Wake Forest staff, faculty, and contract workers who need additional funds to provide traditional holiday meals and gifts for their family through the Holiday Assistance Program. In 2022, over 160 individuals and families were able to make the season bright for themselves and their families through the program.

To Apply


Applicants must be current employee of Wake Forest University (Reynolda Campus, Graylyn, or Wake Downtown), or third-party contract employee (Harvest Table Culinary Group or BUDD) to apply. Gift cards will be distributed the week of December 5.

If you find yourself needing additional financial assistance to pay essential expenses during a time of financial hardship, please check out the Chaplain’s Emergency Fund.
