For more than 20 years, the City of Coppell has sponsored the “Make a Child Smile” holiday program, encouraging community members to donate gifts to deserving children in Coppell ISD. In 2020, gifts were purchased for approximately 400 children in Coppell who may not have otherwise received a present. Please help us once again Make a Child Smile by participating in this special Coppell program.

There will be two ways to contribute this year. From November 1 – 30, those wishing to partake can either stop by the City Manager’s Office to choose a paper ornament from the tree that includes the child’s gift preferences and clothing sizes, or visit makeachildsmilecoppell.com to select a virtual ornament.

Once items are purchased, please return the wrapped gifts with the paper ornament attached to the City Manager’s Office no later than 5 pm on Monday, December 6. If ornaments were chosen virtually, please write the family number, age and gender of the child on a tag and attach it to the gifts. The program’s goal is to provide at least one toy and one article of clothing for each child. City staff volunteers will deliver the gifts prior to Christmas.

In addition to gifts for local children, the City is also collecting donations for local seniors in the form of $50 Wal-Mart gift cards. These gift cards will be given to Metrocrest Services to be added to gift baskets, which are distributed each December to help brighten the holidays for local seniors. Gift card donations should also be dropped off at the City Manager’s Office by 5 pm on Monday, December 6.

The City Manager’s Office is located on the second floor of Town Center, 255 E Parkway Blvd., and is open weekdays from 8 am to 5 pm, except holiday hours.

For more information, please call 972-304-3668 or send us an email.
