While The Holidays are typically a time for family, friends, and fun, our clients often face a season of uncertainty and anxiety. Increased costs associated with bills, wanting to provide gifts for their children, and often not being in the family home are all triggers that can make this time of year especially hard.  

This is why we are asking our community of donors and friends to help support our clients and bring some much-needed holiday cheer into their lives! Below are the ways you can make a significant impact in helping someone end this year on a high.  

  • Feed a family: Purchase food for our clients to have a holiday meal (Thanksgiving and/or December holidays).  
  • Family sizes range from an individual ($30-$40), family of 2-3 people ($50-$75), or family of 4-6 people (cost $75-$125). Aside from purchasing non-perishable food items, we request that a grocery gift card is included for the family to buy meat and/or perishables ($30- $50).  
    • Thanksgiving food box sign-up closes November 7th 
    • December food box sign-up closes on December 9th 
  • Sponsor a family: Shop our curated holiday gift list and provide gifts for an entire family this December! Sign up below, and we will anonymously pair you with one of our client families and provide you with their Wishlist. Family sizes range from individuals to larger families. This is a great opportunity to give back with friends, family, and coworkers and do some guilt free shopping!
