Christmas Cheer 2019
Hamper Applications and Adopt-A-Family forms are now CLOSED.
Please read the informaion below about the details of Christmas Cheer 2019.
Christmas Hamper Applications are now closed for 2019. Please visit us again early November of 2020. Merry Christmas!
Adopt-A-Family donor forms are now closed for 2019. See information below for instructions on gift purchases and when you will be contacted about the family that you have adopted.
Please read the following information carefully.
In the past individuals and businesses have donated either money and/or gifts to a family in need through the Christmas Cheer Adopt-A-Family Program. Due to declining Kinette club
numbers we are making the administration of this program less intensive. As such, there will be two ways someone can adopt a family:
1. The traditional way...you receive the information about the family and shop for age appropriate gifts
2. Providing gift cards for the family in lieu of gifts
If you choose to buy gifts for the family, we ask that you do so with the information provided in the application. It is a time consuming to act as an intermediary between the family and the donor to get sizes and preferences. We will ask the recipients to provide as much information as possible in their application to make it easier for the donor to provide meaningful gifts.
By Tuesday, December 3rd, we will contact you with the wish list of the children so that you can either purchase gifts or gift cards (or a combination of the two). All gifts must be new and unwrapped. We suggest gifts be maximum of $50.00 in value per child. If you would like to provide additional support we kindly ask that it be in the way of gift cards for groceries, household supplies, pharmacy supplies, educational and food items.
Please feel free to include a card with the business name or individual names and signatures of all who supported the family. We will not be passing along the actual names of the family you are sponsoring to ensure confidentiality, so please do not expect a response from the family. We want all individuals to enjoy Christmas and to also maintain their dignity.
All questions about adopting a family or making a donation can be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please visit us in early November 2020 for another opportunity to give to those with the greatest need. Thank you for your support and Merry Christmas!
