About Us

Christmas is for Kids (CIFK) has long been a fun and easy way to spread holiday cheer in Maine. Many local children would have little or nothing to look forward to on Christmas morning without your support. 

CIFK makes it possible to select a child and give online; or you can select a child, shop, and drop off the gift at the sponsoring agency. The search feature allows you to search for a child by town, age, or by sponsoring agency. If you give a general donation, we will select a child that hasn’t been sponsored yet and shop for you.

The average donation to meet one child’s need or wish is approximately $50

CIFK is a partnership between Penquis and Blueberry Broadcasting, which started with the radio station 36 years ago. Penquis is the fiscal agent and oversees the administration of the program.  For customer service inquiries contact Renae Muscatell, Community Relations Manager at Penquis

CIFK collaborates with a variety of participating agencies. The service providers for these organizations and programs identify families facing significant hardships and then enroll them in the CIFK program.

Thank you for adding joy this holiday season!
