Helping a single mother provide Christmas gifts for her children so she does not need to choose between food or gifts, providing gifts for children who would otherwise go without because their mother just got laid off, and bringing Christmas cheer to children who just exited a shelter and need transitional support. Wesley’s Holiday Adoption program provides children in need with the holiday cheer their parents/caregivers desperately want them to have. In order to help as many disadvantaged children as possible, we must secure donor commitment to this annual program.
Many of the children who receive assistance through our Holiday Adoption program are children of Women’s Center participants or children who attend Wesley’s early childhood programs (Wesley’s Early Childhood Center and the Lady Bamford Center). We work with these families year-round. We know their stories and we know their struggles. In 2014, Wesley’s Holiday Adoption program gave over $1,315 in store gift cards to parents/caregivers so they could shop for gifts for their children. More than $1,500 worth of gifts and toys were also provided to families in need. This year, we need more help than ever.
