Our annual Holiday Share and Toy Drive Program ensures that youth and families in need experience the joy and magic of the holidays. This 47-year tradition started with the Novato Human Needs Center and continues through North Marin Community Services (NMCS) since our merger.

To qualify: This program is available to current NMCS program participants who have been income qualified through our Child Development and Case Management Programs. It is available to youth ages infants through age 17 and families in-need. Registration begins each Fall is geared towards families who are facing financial hardship during the holiday season. 

Our December 2019 Holiday Share event was the largest yet, providing support to 401 families and their children. At the event, families enjoyed holiday music, photos with Santa, delicious snacks, face painting and crafts. Their holiday gift take home items included toys, books, bicycles, stuffed animals, $25 gift card for teens, and a $25 Safeway gift card for a holiday meal.

This event is made possible because of the generous community of caring donors. If you are interested in being a sponsor for our December 2020 event, please contact
