2022 Holiday Gift-a-Family Sponsorships Now Open!

About Our 3rd Annual Holiday Gift-a-Family:

In 2020, due to COVID restrictions, we pivoted from our beloved Holiday Shopping Spree event to the Gift-a-Family model in order to continue to support Sunday Friends' families during the holidays. It has been such a great success, we are excited to invite you to support our 3rd annual Gift-a-Family program. Please read through the instructions below and follow the link farther down for the 2022 Gift-a-Family Wishlists to sponsor a family.

All year here at Sunday Friends, families have been hard at work developing their skills in our classes and activities that are equipping them to achieve economic mobility. While participating in these opportunities, families receive basic necessities and other goodies throughout the year, but the holidays can be extra challenging. Gift-a-Family is an opportunity for you to partner with us to elevate hope this holiday season and recognize the consistent self-improvement and learning that families are diligently investing in at Sunday Friends.

Sponsor ~ Shop ~ Wrap ~ Label ~ Deliver ~ Easy!

Sponsor One or More Families:

Each family at Sunday Friends has the opportunity to provide a wishlist. You are invited to sponsor one or more families by shopping for the items on their list, wrapping them up, and delivering them to Sunday Friends on Sunday, December 11, 2022, 9:30-11:30 am.

All you have to do is sponsor, shop, wrap, label, and deliver. Easy!
