Starting in 1995, the Holiday Gift Program, led by volunteer Jody Reichel, helps brighten the holiday season for Atlanta families who struggle to provide for their children, unable to afford the extras, and at times, even the essentials.
Every year, members of our community fall on hard times whether through illness of a child or family member, unemployment, or another financial setback. Thank you to those of you who have donated in the past; hope that you join us again this year as we help put smiles on the faces of needy children and their families. Here’s how you can participate:
1. Adopt a child, teen or adult (age and/or gender requests will be honored where possible) and we will provide you with the wish list. This is a great way for your own children to participate in the process!
2. Purchase gift cards to Kroger, Publix, Target, Wal-Mart, Amazon, Macy’s, Toys R Us, etc. that will go directly to the families. Gift cards may be mailed to JF&CS or arrangements may be made through email or phone call (see contact information below).
3. Make a monetary donation directly to the Holiday
Gift Fund and we will purchase a gift card(s) or gift(s) for a family or individual.
Every dollar donated goes directly to the families and is tax deductible to you. All gifts are appreciated. Please make checks out to JF&CS and mail checks and/or gift cards to JF&CS, attention: Jackie Nix.
