Make A Child Smile This Holiday Season

For more than 20 years, the Coppell community has come together to Make a Child Smile by donating gifts to deserving children in Coppell ISD. Though many things may have changed this year, the community's dedication to assisting residents in need has not. To help ensure that the spirit of giving continues to flourish, while also protecting the health and safety of residents, the City of Coppell has announced a makeover to this year's Make a Child Smile program.

"The Make a Child Smile program is on this year," confirmed City Manager Mike Land. "This is always a special time for the City of Coppell. Our staff looks forward to partnering with our residents each year to bring smiles to children for the holidays, and that remains true this year. We just had to adjust a bit to make sure everyone remains safe." 

How to Donate:

  1. Through Tuesday, December 8, visit to select a virtual ornament that includes a child's gift preferences, clothing sizes, and more. Simply fill in your contact information and submit your request to grant the child's wish!
  2. Purchase clothing and/or toys for the child. The program's goal is to provide at least one toy and one article of clothing for each child.
  3. When you are ready to return your gifts, contact Andrea Parker at to schedule an appointment for drop off.
  4. Please return all wrapped gifts – in an opaque bag with the family number, gender and age of the child attached to the bag – to the City Manager's Office no later than Tuesday, December 8. City staff will deliver the gifts prior to Christmas.

The City Manager's Office is located on the second floor of Town Center, 255 E. Parkway Blvd. and is open by appointment only.
