Sponsor a Child

Santa Claus, gift

Sponsor a Child

Please choose a child to sponsor from the list below. If you are familiar with WesternU’s Santa’s Workshop event, you may notice we have more older teens and young adults on the list. Historically this event provided gifts for children aged newborn-14 years. During the pandemic, we were able to expand our age groupings to include older teens. This year, for the first time, the Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS) has identified young adults, aged 17-21, who will greatly benefit from the generosity of the WesternU Santa’s Workshop event. These young adults remain in the foster care system and are receiving AB12 services (a federal program to prevent homelessness of foster youth). Many of them are survivors of child abuse and neglect and have limited support outside of their DCFS social worker. We are expanding our hearts a little more this year by including these young adults on our list of gift recipients. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact University Student Affairs (

Please keep in mind, the social worker meets with the families to build the list. We ask them to keep the items reasonably priced. We must ensure that every child is sponsored so please only sign up if you are able to purchase and deliver a gift by the deadline mentioned below.

How it works:

  1. Review the list below to see which child you would like to sponsor.
    Pro-tip 1: You can sort the list by age, gender, and if a child has already been sponsored.
    Pro-tip 2: Note the “Gift” number assigned to the name – you’ll need it!
  2. To confirm your sponsorship please:
    Chat with us on the Santa’s Workshop Team site -or-
    E-mail: studentaffairs@westernu.eduor-
    Call: 909-469-5340
  3. Once confirmed you’ll receive an e-mail with all of the details.
  4. Please DELIVER/MAIL your WRAPPED (gift bags preferred) and LABELED gift(s) to the University by November 20, 2023. Detailed instructions will be provided in your confirmation e-mail.
