Make A Child Smile

​​​​​​​​The purpose of Make a Child Smile (intended solely for children enrolled in CISD and residing within the city limits of Coppell) is just what it says - to do our part to put big, happy smiles on the faces of all children in Coppell at Christmas time.

In previous years, the generosity and kindness of Coppell businesses and citizens have enabled us to provide each child in our program with a toy and an article of clothing.  City employees donate their time to separate, bag, and deliver the gifts to the families approximately one week before Christmas.

Some families may be experiencing temporary circumstances and may need a little extra help during the holiday season.  The City does not want the name of the child or family.  All we need is an address, child's gender, child's age, child's clothing size, and child's hobbies/interests​.  Also, any information about other children in the family – from infants through seniors in high school - is greatly appreciated.  This help​s us ensure that all children in the family receive gifts and that no child is left out or overlooked.
