The Holiday Season is Near The holiday season is fast approaching and we are looking for sponsors to participate in this year’s program. The ways you can help are: Sponsor a family (or families) for Christmas by providing Christmas gifts for all family members and a gift certificate to a grocery store or food Purchase a gift for a child or teenager and drop it off at the Aviva office (we never seem to receive enough gifts for teenagers!). Send a cash donation so Aviva can purchase holiday food and gifts for needy families without sponsors Send a cash donation so that Aviva can purchase Christmas gifts for teenagers who are living in shelters, group homes, or an independent living program.
As always, the need is great. Last year Aviva fed hundreds of hungry families during the holidays and provided Christmas gifts for thousands of children who would have otherwise had a bleak Christmas. We were able to do so because of generous community donors. It is great when we all work together to help those who are less fortunate. To help us coordinate our Holiday Sponsorship Program, please fill out the information sheet provided in this newsletter and return it to Aviva as soon as you decide how you can help. If you choose to sponsor families this year, you will be contacted with information about the family(ies). Please include an email address as that is how we will provide you with the information. Please call Pat 327-6779, ext. 37 or email at: email@example.com if you have any questions. Wrappers Needed! Once all the toys start to collect we need to wrap them for the children. We start wrapping the day after the Sun Rider’s Annual Toy Parade. This year we will be wrapping in the gym at Palo Verde Baptist church on Tuesday, December 15th through Friday, December 18th. Wrapping Day is always a fun event and a great holiday volunteer opportunity. The case workers put in requests for children living with relatives, still with their own families or who have been reunited with their families. The request includes the child’s age and what toys they would like. This is a great time for those of you who like to wrap presents for a lot of children but don’t want to have to buy those gifts. If you would like to join us on Wrapping Day, please call Susan at 327-6779, ext. 11 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
