Several years ago we created a Holiday Giving Program, which enables us to help as many people as possible have a happier holiday season. Among the many families we serve, there are a number of caregivers who are financially unable to make this holiday season special for their loved one.

If you would like to be a part of our Holiday Giving Program this year, you and/or your organization can help by contributing in any of the following ways:

• Adopt an individual or family (you will be given a gift wish list, along with ages and genders).

• Donate gift cards or food/supermarket cards.

• Make a monetary donation (we’ll purchase the gifts for families who haven’t been adopted yet).

If you would like to participate in our Holiday Giving Program or if you have questions, please contact:

• Jamie Daniels @ [email protected] or 518-783-1111 x 1237 • Ellyn Horning @ [email protected] or 518-783-1111 x 1299

Several years ago we created a Holiday Giving Program to help as many people as possible have a happier holiday season. Among the many individuals we serve, there are a number of them who need assistance to make their holiday season special.

We only have 8 individuals left on our Holiday Tree that still need assistance during this holiday season! Each individual has given us a wish list of a few items they would like for the holidays.

If you know of anyone that would like to assist in our Holiday Giving Program or if you have any questions, please contact Jamie or Ellyn. Thank you!!
