Positive family memories and experiences can last a lifetime. With the Holiday Helpers program, we accept donations and contributions from businesses and community members year-round so families can enjoy a variety of celebrations together.
We also work with at-risk, foster, adoptive, and kinship families to create special birthday celebrations. Foster children often report that because of frequent moves, or inaccurate records, foster families, or caregivers, have forgotten or skipped birthdays. One former foster child resorted to Craigslist in an attempt to “rent” a family to be with her for her birthday. She offered $8.00 an hour to anyone willing to spare some time and effort.
These children deserve better.
We happily accept donations for children & youth between the ages of 0-21, including:
For major Holiday’s, we ask that donations of gifts, baskets, costumes, or food be in NEW condition. However, we have many uses and needs for gently used items throughout the year as well.
