Here's how the process works:
Each Jacob's Heart family will be asked by our volunteers and staff what kinds of gifts each family member would like for the holidays. The price range for each gift is about $50, with a maximum of three gifts per child. And, it is always very meaningful to include special gifts for parents. Moms and dads of children with serious illnesses are extremely stressed - a special gift for them means a lot!
Once we have the family's list, Jacob's Heart will contact each "adopter/donor" and provide a list of the favorite things, favorite colors, sizes and requests. We hope to get each donor the lists soon as possible. (Hopefully before Black Friday!)
This year, we have created gift registries on AMAZON and TARGET to make it easy for our donors.
PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU USE THE GIFT REGISTRY. AMAZON DOES NOT GIVE DONOR INFORMATION TO US. WE'D LIKE TO SEND YOU A THANK YOU AND TAX RECEIPT.
Once you've shopped, we ask that you please deliver your gifts to the Jacob's Heart Family Center at 680 West Beach Street in Watsonville during the week of December 9th, or help us make arrangements for pick-up.
Please include a gas, grocery or store gift card for your family.
Jacob's Heart staff and volunteers will deliver gifts to the families at home or in the hospital. Please let us know if you'd like to help us wrap and/or deliver the gifts.
Thank you for filling out the form below. Happy holidays from all of us at Jacob's Heart!
