The Holiday Season is such a special time of year, and we want to take a
part in helping families that are need! Share the Love is a way that we collaborate
with local non-profits who directly serve families and to provide these families with
a hot holiday meal, pantry money, essential clothing for their kiddos and a little fun while we're at it! So how does the project work?
We are accepting contributions through the end of November which will help us determine how many youth/families we are able to sponsor. At that time we connect directly with our local collaborating non-profits to identify the families we get to work with this year. Parents/Guardians provide us with clothing sizes and wish list items.
Then we call on our volunteers!! With 2 Prep Nights - Shopping and Wrapping, we get all the goodies ready to go. Which is followed up with a Holiday Pick Up Party where all the families come and enjoy some Christmas Festivities, pick up their wrapped gifts and take picture with Santa!!
Each family will receive a gift certificate for a prepaid Hot Holiday Meal through one of our local grocery stores. These include turkey or ham, veggies, potatoes and dessert that feeds up to 8 people.
Each youth will receive a whole wardrobe of essential clothing - shoes/socks, multiple pairs of pants and shirts, a heavy sweater or coat, and pajama's. Each child will also receive a fun item from their wish list.
A sponsored family will receive a hot holiday meal, essential clothing for their kiddos and a grocery store gift certificate to help fill their pantry and supplement their budget.
