Neighbors’ Holiday Gift Program is a unique opportunity to share in a meaningful way. It supplements the resources of families whose holiday might otherwise be meager and serves as a clearinghouse, bringing together the generosity of the community and directing it in an orderly way to assist area families. This program is made possible by community support and thousands of volunteer hours. The program starts October 22 and responds to the needs of the season with new toys and clothing for children and seniors. As a community-based program, all gifts remain in the community to brighten the holiday of our neighbors.
Adopt-a-Family and Adopt-a-Senior
You are assigned a specific family for which you will shop, and are given each person’s first name, age, gender, clothing size and gift suggestions. Even though you will not actually meet the family involved, many have found this to be a particularly personal and meaningful way of sharing the holidays.
We are currently accepting adoption applications. To adopt a family or senior, please call 651-306-2140.
Money designated for holiday toys, clothing or food is used to purchase those items. Donations may also be dedicated to support our intake staff that meet with each client family to determine eligibility and to capture client wish list. Donate here.
A considerable number of volunteer hours are needed. If you can spare a few pre-holiday hours for a very rewarding program, please call 651-272-1133.
