The holiday season is supposed to be a special time for all, and UAW Local 249 is planning to adopt a few families experiencing unforeseen hardship this Christmas. We know that Christmas-time can be hard for many families and members of our community. Financial struggles make it difficult for parents to put gifts under the tree for their little ones and that some families who have never had to ask for help before have found themselves struggling.
If you know of a family that could use some UAW support with gifts for children this Christmas, please have them signup below.
Gifts will be provided by Local 249 members who "adopt" the children and shop for them from their wish list. The adopters will never receive identifying information about the child, only information from their wish list that will help them purchase gifts for the child.
Sign-ups will only be open for a limited time and submission does not guarantee that you will receive gifts. We will be accepting submissions in groups of 25 over the next several weeks and will contact you via text / phone if you are selected to get further details.
We would love to help everyone but we are only able to accept a limited number of families, so sign-ups will be closed when we reach that number. Pickup for family's selected will be by Thursday, December 22nd.
Thank you and happy holidays, from UAW Local 249.
