Foster's Fosters Holiday Gift Drive at Johnny Wicks

Monterey, CA

Johnny Wicks Candle Studio is hosting our third annual holiday gift drive for foster children. The mission of the project is to bring joy, laughter, and a sense of belonging to those children who, for various reasons, don't have the opportunity to experience the magic of Christmas like most of us do.

Whether it's a warm coat, a special gift, or a memorable Christmas experience, we welcome donations of gifts and gift cards dropped off during business hours at the studio at 499 Calle Principal, or you can make a financial donation here
