As we look at the calendar, we realize it’s time to start planning our annual holiday celebration for the children in our care and the families who provide them safe, loving homes. In 2014, we were overwhelmed with the generosity of our supporters who literally flooded us with toys and gifts for the children. In some cases we didn’t have enough age-appropriate gifts for many of the children and had to scramble to rally additional donations.
This year, we are asking donors who wish to provide gifts to sponsor one or more families, or a specific number of children. We will provide a profile of each family (number of children by age and gender) or child being sponsored and ask for age-appropriate, practical gifts – focused on learning and development (books, videos, educational toys, backpacks for school, etc.). Tweens and teens love gift cards and movie tickets! We request that each gift will be wrapped and labeled by the donor and delivered to our offices by November 30th.
We welcome individuals and companies to participate at whatever level is comfortable. You may select your sponsorship level online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZQCBMX3 or contact Daniela Lopez ([email protected] or 213-365-2900) to make arrangements.
For supporters who do not wish to sponsor children, we welcome a donation of cash to help offset the cost of the festivities.
Please help us in making the 2015 holidays memorable for the children in our care.
