11 Nov Holiday Giftcard Drive for Families
COVID has changed a lot of things in our lives, but one thing we won’t allow it to change is giving back over the holidays. After a long series of deliberations, we’ve decided to make a few necessary changes in how the holiday giving program runs this year.
- We will not be able to have any group volunteer events; this includes our annual gift-wrapping extravaganza weekend. Because of this pivot and being unable to wrap every gift in the traditional sense, we will be collecting donations of gift bags & tissue paper so that items can still be ‘wrapped’ for residents and shelter guests.
- For children’s gifts, we will only be accepting gift cards. This will allow parents to choose the best gifts for their children, in what has been an extraordinarily difficult year for many. If you normally purchase gifts for children in our programs, please purchase $25 gift cards for Target, Fred Meyer or Amazon in lieu of gifts this year.
To cover our 6 family program buildings, approximately 900 gift cards are needed. (1 gift card = 1 gift for 1 child)
