Sponsor a Family

You can make the holidays happier for families in SOS housing and children’s programs! Donate gift cards so that parents can purchase holiday gifts for their children.

If you are interested in collecting gift cards to help an SOS family buy holiday gifts, you can donate gift cards ranging in value from $10-$25 each. Major retailers such as Target, Meijer, and Walmart are preferred.

The goal is to provide 50 families in SOS programs with enough gift cards to buy $50 worth of holiday gifts per family member.

Gift cards should be turned in by the first week of December, so that they are distributed in time for families to purchase holiday gifts.
