THE COMMITMENT

As a Family Sponsor, you are matched with a family or families and provide them with food or grocery store gift cards and gifts for children in the family who are 17 or younger and deliver them to the home. You contact the family to find out specific needs and/or gift wishes and to arrange a delivery time after the purchases have been made.

All Seniors have been sponsored. As a Senior Sponsor, we match you with a senior or senior couple to provide with food or grocery store gift cards, and a gift. Once you have made the holiday purchases, you deliver the items directly to the senior(s) who may want to spend some time with you, sharing the spirit of the holidays.
