HOT’s Annual Sugar Plum Fairies program helps provide a magical Christmas to struggling West Valley children and their families. Our volunteer teams work with local schools to identify the children that need our help the most.  Since we started in 2020, we have supported 400 children through Sugar Plum Fairies.  In 2023, we have funding to select up to 275 children.

Seeing my children’s smiles and excitement was the most memorable part of this experience.

In our house Christmas is about giving, so contributing to the Sugar Plum Fairies was a perfect avenue for us, with HOT as a wonderful conduit.

Donna, Volunteer

Our experience with Santa was perfect! As a mom with a child with autism and six kids, sometimes events can be very overwhelming. But Sugar Plum Fairies was very easy as everyone was so helpful and kind. We are very thankful for the experience, gifts, and smiles at Christmastime. It was a tough year for us, so every gift opened, the shoes, the clothes, the grocery gift cards, was another burden lifted off my shoulders.

Samantha, Recipient

We were most impacted this past Christmas by HOT’s vast amount of gifts and energy given to our family. My children loved the blankets, and they came in very helpful! Thank you to all! You make a difference!

The Sugar Plum Fairies floated in like angels to create sweet memories for kiddos who were overjoyed with all of the gifts and beautiful packages.

Shelley, Volunteer

My family was impacted during a difficult time by such wonderful and amazing people! I will never forget you.

Alex, Recipient

I have to say that this really was an unforgettable experience. The fact that it was personalized and the attention to detail was just amazing.  I was humbled to receive the support and generosity from the Sugar Plum Fairies. It brought tears to my eyes and I get emotional just thinking about it.


The most memorable experience was picking up the presents and taking pictures with Mrs. Claus. The kids have never had a beautiful experience like this before. It is a moment to cherish forever.
