The W.I.S.H. (WILMER’S INITIATIVE TO SPREAD HOPE) Program helps provide Christmas gifts for Wilmer children each year. Every child deserves to experience the joy of Christmas. In 2022, the W.I.S.H. Program impacted approximately 250 children in need.
The City collects necessary information to determine eligibility to participate in the program and details on each Wilmer Star [child]. Examples may include, but are not limited to photo ID, proof of residence (lease, utility bill or mail received from the school district or other government agency). Examples of documents needed for each child may include but are not limited to birth certificate, official custody or guardianship papers, clothing and shoe sizes, and a toy wish for each child. No private information for you or your Wilmer Star is shared with the public. Donors will only be given the gender and Christmas wish list for each Wilmer Star.
The City of Wilmer will begin accepting applications on Monday, October 30, 2023, through Friday, November 17, 2023.
