The Holiday Program brings holiday cheer to over 800 families in need. Families are supported by the generosity of the community contributing to the true spirit of the season to help out families involved with our agency. Our protection workers complete wish lists with families, to identify needs. There are several ways to help!
Here’s how … Click on each individual link below.
Sponsor a Family – We have families with 2 – 10 members available for sponsorship! When you sponsor a family, a wish list will be provided to you that includes clothing, toys, and household items for the family. We estimate that a family of 4 is approximately $350.00 to sponsor, however we have families that will match most budgets.
Sponsor a CCSY (Continued Care and Support for Youth) – These are children aged 17-21 whom are still in our care, but have aged out of foster care, and are living on their own. Our holiday program brings these youth so much joy!
Organize a Giving Tree or a Toy Drive – Are you a member of a team, church, daycare or large another large organization that would like to get your member’s involved. We can provide a list of wishes for however many number of children that you require. Add the wishes to a Christmas tree, and let others pick a name to shop for! Or run a toy drive! Our Community Initiatives Coordinator can provide a list of our most requested items!
Monetary Donations – Monetary donations are always welcome, and every amount helps! We utilize these funds to supplement sponsorships and ensure every family in need receives support.
