The holidays can be a difficult time for families struggling to stay one step ahead of daily expenses. Many do not have the additional resources needed to provide their children with the celebrations and gifts that so many children enjoy during this time of year. The generosity of Family Star supporters provided gifts to 140 children last year. And, with your help again this year, we can bring bright and cheerful holidays to all of the children and families who need our support this holiday season.
Listed below are a variety of ways to lend your support to Family Star families. Whether you decide to adopt a child, provide holiday food baskets or donate warm hats and mittens, this is a wonderful opportunity for individuals, families, businesses or clubs to participate in the season of giving. To sign up, please contact Beth Brinkerhoff at 303.477.7827 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donate Retail Gift Cards: This is an easy option during the hectic holiday season. We will distribute gift cards for major retail stores that sell food, clothing and toys to our neediest families.
Adopt-A-Child: Choose a boy or girl in the 0-6 age range. We’ll provide you with a first name and a wish list for the child.
Adopt-A-Family: Many Family Star children have older siblings and their parents greatly appreciate gifts for all of the children in the family (ages 12 and younger). Let us know the size of the family you’d like to adopt and we will provide you with the first names of all of the children, their ages, gender and a wish list for each child
Prepare Holiday Food Baskets: Help provide a family with a special holiday meal. For health & safety reasons, all of the food must be store bought and packaged. Let us know how many baskets you will make and deliver them to our main office for distribution to families in need.
Cover Our Hat & Mitten Tree: Provide the winter clothing and accessories that young children need to stay warm in Colorado. We need hats, mittens, snow pants, coats, scarves and boots sized for newborns through 6 years old.
