How to Apply (English)

How to apply:

Step 1) determine if you qualify for our program! There are four things we look at:

  • Age of kids: the program provides gifts for children between 18 months and 18 years of age. In order to be considered for Sub for Santa, a family must have at least one child between these ages. Babies qualify if they have older siblings.
  • Income: We’ll use your income, expenses, individual disability and other unusual circumstances to determine if you qualify.
  • Location: We also only serve people who live in Utah County! (Provo, Orem, Lehi, Spanish Fork, Lindon, Eagle Mountain, Vineyard, Plesant Grove, Alpine, Mapleton, Goshen, Genola, Springville, Saratoga Springs, Salem, Elk ridge, American Fork, Payson, Highland, Cedar Hills, Woodland Hills, Cedar Fort)
  • Number of years you’ve applied to our program: Sub for Santa is a temporary Christmas assistance program.

We understand that circumstances aren't always straightforward, so if you feel like you really need the help, please apply and we'll take a look.

Step 2) Find out when and where the next open house is. You MUST show up in person to apply. Call 801-356-6200 or text 385-236-3343 to find out workshop days, times and locations. There’s a lot of info, so get ready to take some notes before you call! 

Step 3) Bring a few things to the open house:

  • Picture ID of yourself (e.g. a driver’s license)
  • ID for all the children you’re applying for: original or certified copies of birth certificates, baptismal papers, or school ID. Whatever you bring must show date of birth, age or school grade for that child.
  • Income verification for the last 30 days: your last two current pay stubs, a letter from your employer stating your monthly income, Medicaid statements, housing support, letter explaining help from your church, etc.
  • Proof of your current address: a bill, lease agreement, etc.
  • Info about your kids! We’ll want to know things like clothing size, shoe size, what kind of books they like to read, what they need most.
