Sign Up A Family

If you know a family who has been coping with serious illness and loss, we want to help create good, hopeful and joyful memories for them this season.  Go to to refer a family, and their caring staff will coordinate. We respect how humbling it can be when reaching out for support, and we want to let our families know how much it HELPS US, and how much JOY it brings to US when we get to share the holidays with them.

Donate Gifts

Each year we post a list of locations where you can drop off donations of new, unwrapped toys.  You can also bring them to the KiDS NEED MoRE offices at 600 Albany Avenue, Amityville NY, Monday through Friday between the hours of 10 AM and 3 PM.

Or to make things even more convenient, buy something from the Cheer Bus Wish List on  You can even have your Amazon package delivered directly to the Spencer Foundation at 46 Glenna Little Trail, Huntington, NY 11743.
