Every little bit helps! Here are some ways you can help us meet the needs of the children and families we serve:
1. Holiday Donations
ADOPT AN ANGEL
Children of all ages love the thrill of a holiday gift. Our Angel wish lists make it easy to create happiness for an individual child with his or her very own wishes and sizes.
ADOPT A FAMILY
From single parent families to families with multiple children, choosing to help an entire family during the holidays can address many needs. Their lists can include items such as basic bedding, a holiday meal, or presents under the tree for all. Families with the greatest needs are selected to participate in the holiday program.
HOST A TOY DRIVE
For those children that do not receive a sponsor, a special toy on Christmas can make a positive memory that lasts a lifetime. Collect gifts with your group or office in whatever way you think will be most successful.
