Every December, we offer a holiday program for families in our housing programs. Generous sponsors from the community—individuals, businesses, clubs, religious groups, scout troops and others—partner with us to provide gifts for our families, who are working hard to make ends meet and really appreciate a helping hand at the holidays.
We’re signing up sponsors for this year’s program now! Since many families shared positive feedback about receiving gift cards last year, we are requesting gift cards only. This will allow safe, contact-free drop off. But even more important, it gives parents autonomy and opportunity to shop as they choose—and the joy of seeing their children open the gifts that they were able to pick out. As one mom said, “Because of COVID we started to struggle. These gift cards provided us everything we needed to give our daughter…a beautiful Christmas.”
Family sponsors will select a family’s “wish list” of gift cards in early November; cards can be shipped directly to our office or dropped off anytime before December 8.
We are also looking for some general sponsors, to donate supplies like bedding and household items to support our families and properties all year round.
Thanks for making the 2021 holiday season a little brighter for the children and families in our programs!
