With Your Investment, We Can Do Good Together
Making Spirits Bright Holiday Gift Drive
BE A HOLIDAY GIFT BUNDLE SPONSOR!
Every year, Friends Association invites our community to help make spirits brighter for children and families impacted by homelessness and housing instability – a bright reminder that they have our community’s love and support. This year you can become a Holiday Gift Bundle Sponsor. With your support, we will provide families with gift cards so they can purchase presents, big bows, sparkly wrapping paper, and stuffed stockings to hang by the chimney with care. “Friends” like you truly help make this season special for our neighbors.
WRAP, RIBBONS & BOWS
Your commitment to sponsor a family with a Holiday Bundle includes a $50 Walmart, Target, or VISA gift card, a personalized stocking stuffed with trinkets, and holiday gift wrapping essentials (wrapping paper, tape, ribbons/bows) so families have everything they need for the holiday. Friends plan to distribute gift cards to our neighbors no later than December 15, 2023. To schedule an in-person drop-off please email Karina Olmeda at email@example.com. You will receive a receipt for your donation. Thank you for supporting our Neighbors!
