2019 Holiday Gift Distribution at Santa's Village

Children from birth through 12 years of age who live in metro Atlanta and receive any form of public assistance including CAPS, Medicaid, Peach Care, SSI, SNAP and TANF are eligible to receive gifts from The Empty Stocking Fund.

Online pre-registration will be available on Oct. 15, 2019. UPDATE – Online registration will be available by Monday, Oct. 21st.

Bring proof of public assistance benefits for all children for whom you are picking up gifts and a photo ID to Santa’s Village (see location information and hours of operation to the right). Proof of public assistance benefits varies depending on the type of benefits your children receive. Regardless, the notice must be from a state or Federal agency like DFCS or SSI, must be current, and must include names for all children for whom you will be shopping.

You may show proof on your mobile device by logging into www.gateway.ga.gov. For Medicaid and Food Stamps, click on ‘View Details’ and a list of eligible children will appear with their birth dates.

Children are welcome at Santa’s Village but do not have to be with you to receive gifts.

The last day to receive gifts is Saturday, Dec. 21st.

What to Expect on Your Visit

The first step is to check-in. A volunteer will validate your invitation and confirm your children’s ages and genders. They’ll assign you an order number to take with you to the showroom waiting area.

When your order number is called, another volunteer will walk you through the showroom where you will be able to choose two toys and a book for each eligible child (all children will receive a package of socks and an educational item). All the items in the showroom are organized by gender and age, so it is easy to find the perfect gift!

Once you have chosen your gifts, your showroom volunteer will direct you to the gift distribution waiting area. While you wait, yet another volunteer will be picking your selected items from our warehouse shelves.  When your order is ready, a volunteer will call your number, and together, you’ll double check that everything is correct. Then you’re on your way to a Merry Christmas.
