Each year, we invite generous companies and members of the community to support the families in our program by providing them with basic necessities and holiday gifts. Based on the amount of financial support and time commitment you are comfortable providing, you can commit to sponsoring a whole family (or several), or select your preferred method of contributing to the Holiday Family Giving Program.
1. Gift cards: Gift cards offer a family flexibility in purchasing holiday gifts and necessities. We are looking for gift cards in denominations from $25 to $100 for locations such as Safeway, Fred Meyers, Target, Ross and Wal-Mart.
2. Family Gift Registry: Our families can request larger household necessities such as comforters and warm clothing that are listed on Amazon.com and are under $75. We have compiled a registry of these requests. If you would like to purchase a Registry item, you can find them at this link: https://smile.amazon.com/wedding/friends-of-the-children-seattle-our-amazing-youth-and-their-families-seattle-december-2018/registry/3V99MPGGDFLG8
3. Family Time Toolkits: These gift baskets provide a family with all the materials they need for a fun activity together. Families have been told to select one of three themes. If you sign up to contribute to a Family Time Toolkit, please provide themed items such as those listed below: - Game Night: card games, a multiplayer/family video game, board games - Movie Night: culturally relevant, family-friendly movies, snacks and activities - Baking Night: baking mixes, mix for healthy dish, cooking supplies (utensils or cookbooks)
You can contribute to all three components by choosing to sponsor a whole family, or you can just pick one or two, or you can send us a monetary donation in lieu of specific gifts. Thank you so much for your support!
