HOLIDAY GIVING

PROGRAM

Adopt A Wish Family for Thanksgiving & Christmas

 

2020 has been a challenging year for so many people. Our Wish Families continue to struggle to take care of their child living with a life threatening illness. The holidays bring on additional stress as many try to find part time work to pay for Xmas presents and provide for holiday meals for all their children. Being thankful at Thanksgiving requires them to find food at the emergency food banks.  This year, we would like to help by bringing families in need a Thanksgiving Package.  (Turkey, side dishes, tablecloth, apple pie etc.)

 

During the Christmas season, we invite folks to adopt a wish family who may need extra support to make Christmas a little brighter. Participants purchase gifts for each member of the family. You can choose the family size you want to adopt. If you do not have the time to shop, you can donate cash and we will shop for you.  We also ask each family to identify a few household items they may need, as many do not have enough money to provide a safe and nurturing environment for their families.  Examples: sheets, comforters, curtains, bath curtains, dishes, pots and pans etc.
