Adopt A Family! Gifts needed by Dec 4thPosted: November 19, 2014
Become an Angel this Christmas by granting the wish of someone in need!
Due to the incredible response we had last year, the POD and our dancer families are once again sponsoring 2 families this holiday season from Harbor House Domestic Abuse Center. These are families in financial need that are not only burdened with being able to provide for themselves and their children during the Holiday Season but are also busy securing safety for their family as well. Everyone is invited to participate but please do not feel any obligation.
HOW IT WILL WORK
We just received information on the families and have it at the studio this week. We have a small tree in our lobby decorated with Gift Tags that contain a “wish” or a “need” for one of our families. Due to the stress that these families are under, many sign up for the program late so there are also tags containing general wishes and needs for the Harbor House and the people they serve.
- Pick a tag from the tree. (Be sure to keep it). Some tags contain specific items. Others wish for gift cards- allowing “Mom” to purchase items for her child.
- Bring your tag up to Dawn and record your ticket number along with your name and phone number on our list. Then go shopping!
- Bring in your gift- unwrapped- with the tag attached (taped) and place it in the box by the tree.
- Want to participate but don’t have time to shop? Please donate $. The POD staff will go shopping for additional items or tags left on the tree.
One problem in this whole set-up is the timing. We are off next week and we can’t receive the family lists any earlier. The gifts have to be brought to the Harbor House by Dec 8th. So, WE need the items to us by Thursday, Dec 4th. That’s only two weeks!! If possible, please stop in the POD this week and grab a tag. In fact, the earlier to stop in, the better chance you have of picking a tag that is a great fit for your family. Thank you so much for your participation and generosity!
