holiday giving

 While social distancing may change the way we celebrate this year, there are still many ways to celebrate this joyous season and share Christ’s love with local families in need! 

ways to get involved

Adopt a Family for Thanksgiving: There are many families who do not have the means to enjoy a turkey dinner with loved ones. If you would like to donate a gift card to sponsor a meal, we can connect you with a thankful recipient!

Donate Gift Cards for Christmas: In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are changing the way we collect and distribute donations. This year, rather than asking for Christmas gifts, we’re requesting gift cards to stores like Walmart, Target, and Amazon.com. This adjusted approach allows us to do two important things. First, by limiting contact we can keep donors like you and our recipients safe by making sure that we’re not contributing to the spread of the virus. Second, gift cards will allow parents to experience the joy of shopping for the gifts on their children’s wish lists. 

We hope to have all donations sent to our office by December 11th so parents have enough time to shop and have online purchases delivered before Christmas. If you  would like to schedule a contactless drop-off, please email Kristen Carrasco at kristen@buildingfamiliesforchildren.org

Donate Funds: We provide direct monetary assistance during the holidays and throughout the year to families struggling with homelessness, transportation, utilities, etc. If you or your church want to host an event to raise funds, we can provide posters, bulletin inserts and additional materials to support your effort.
