Christmas Assistance Drawing

Registration for the Online Christmas Drawing is now closed.

Our Christmas Helpline (508-238-2562) will open on Tuesday, November 30th.

If you previously registered for the drawing but your name was not selected, we are sorry. Please call our Christmas Helpline starting Tuesday, November 30th.

Last Christmas, My Brother’s Keeper served 3,150 local families but more than 11,000 families called for help. This makes our Christmas Assistance phone number very, very busy. We know the result is wasted time and wasted cell phone minutes so we are trying something new this year: an online Christmas Assistance Drawing.

How it will work:

  • Families who live in our service area are eligible to register for the drawing.
  • Every two weeks, families will be chosen at random.
  • Randomly-selected families will receive an email with a link to schedule a convenient phone appointment.
  • My Brother's Keeper staff and volunteers will call the randomly-selected families by appointment.

Additional Information:

  • Completing the online form enters your family in the Christmas Assistance Drawing only. It is not a commitment from My Brother's Keeper to provide Christmas help.
  • Registrations not selected will automatically roll over to the next drawing.
  • In addition to the drawings, we plan to have regularly scheduled call-in periods in November and December as in past years.
