Support a Family in need

Your help is needed

We believe and hope that every person feels special and cared-for during this time of year. We know that for many people, the holidays can be a difficult time, emotionally and financially, a time of heightened stress. We understand that there are reasons why people have a hard time, and that no one struggles without cause.

This year we are focusing on providing gift cards, personal items and food for families, given the limitations for shopping due to COVID-19.We are asking the community to either support a family by purchasing items on their list or to make a financial donation and we will purchase the needed items.

Below is a list of items that are listed on the form that families are filling out to indicate their greatest needs/wants for Christmas. This should give you an idea of the kinds of things we will need.
