ON-LINE DONATION OPTIONS:
Give a financial gift to help support our Family Christmas Celebrations! It takes a lot to feed over 1,000 people and provide gifts and activities for all of the moms and families we serve at these Christmas events. We depend on donations and the generosity of our supporters and local community to make these events happen each year. For many families, this is the highlight of their entire year and the only holiday celebration they will enjoy together. Thank you for making these events possible and for helping our moms and their families "Make Memories Together"!
Help a mom and her family "Make Memories Together" this Christmas! Attending families enjoy a sit down traditional turkey dinner with all the fixings, and free family portraits, photos with Santa, and lots of fun activities including cookie decorating, a cupcake walk, slot car racing, singing, and lots more! Each family also receives a Food Bag gift at the end of the evening that includes everything they need to enjoy a Christmas dinner at home.
Each family receives a Food Bag Gift at the end of the Christmas event that is filled with non-perishable grocery items (ex: mashed potato mix, hot chocolate mix, and canned goods) needed to make and enjoy a Christmas dinner at home. We also include, with each Food Bag, a $25 Grocery Gift Card, so moms can purchase perishable items (ex: meats and produce) they need to complete a special holiday meal.

You can drop off donation items at our main office Monday - Thursday 9 am - 1 pm
or make arrangements with Louanne at firstname.lastname@example.org
