It’s that time of year again, when we start to think about family and those who make our lives richer just for being there.
The holidays are also a time for us to share our blessings with those less fortunate. Saint Vincent’s invites generous organizations and individuals to “Adopt a Family” from the Day Home to ensure their Christmas becomes a little merrier.
This year we have over 195 families at the Day Home who will have a much happier holiday because of your generosity.
We ask that your gifts be labeled with the name for whom the gift is intended and then dropped off at Saint Vincent’s Day Home no later than Friday, December 12, 2014. The Day Home is open between 7am and 5:30pm to receive your gifts.
How You Can Participate
Adopt a Family
If you’re interested in participating, we’ll provide the family member’s first names, ages and genders, plus a bit of information about their situation. Since this is a surprise for the families, we do not have wish lists.
As a reminder, please do not include war toys or perishables. And, we recommend you include the gift receipt, in case an exchange needs to be made.
While the presents should not to be wrapped, it’s extra nice if you include wrapping paper, ribbon and boxes with your gifts so that parents have the opportunity to participate in their child’s Christmas celebration.
Not sure what to give? Our Family Learning Program encourages parents to share books with our children and teach them the value of reading, so picture books or gift certificates to a bookstore are always a wonderful choice.
Donate Gift Cards
Gift cards are very practical for our families, and are a good option if you don’t have much time to shop. Some suggestions for gift certificates are:
Target, Sears, Toys R Us, Old Navy, Walmart, Safeway/ Pak’n Save , or Lucky’s.
