Welcome to the online edition of St. Catherine's Center for Children's 2016 annual gift catalog!

This page offers a selection of gifts that you can donate to children and families at St. Catherine’s Center for Children.  Your gift will not only make the holiday season brighter for someone, but it will also bring joy all year long! We work hard to meet the basic needs of children and families, but they still lack things that most of us take for granted. That’s where you can help!  

It may be hard to imagine, but your gift may provide a 9-year-old girl the first birthday party she has ever enjoyed. Dinner and a movie may be common for your family, but some children have never enjoyed that simple pleasure. You can use this gift catalog to help make dreams come true! 

Of course, you can also select a gift to meet any emergency needs a family might have, including food and essentials for a newborn baby! 

The holiday season is a time for giving, and your donation offers an added bonus. Give a gift in honor of a family member or friend, and we will notify that individual of your special gift. Just contact Editha Furtaw at or (518) 453-6700 x 6425.

Thank you for your continued support. May you have a Merry Christmas and a joyous holiday season!
