Christmas Donations

Looking to Spread some Christmas Cheer?

Thank you for wanting to be a part of spreading holiday cheer to local families!
We have several options this year, so please let us know what works best for you & your group!

  1. Adopting individuals and families for Christmas
    1. Wish lists will be obtained by our Staff and provided to you.
    2. Please complete this short form to let me know how many people you’d like to buy for:
      1. Gifts should be new and unwrapped and delivered by 12/12.
      2. Chemung County: deliver to our Church Street Office
    3. Schuyler County: deliver to Schuyler Outreach Food Pantry
    4. The families that are being adopted are experiencing homelessness or domestic violence. They are staying at a local motel or Safehouse and do not have much space for their personal belongings. To that end, we are suggesting that gifts be brought in in a storage tote (no larger than 31 gallons) that families can use to store the gifts in while they’re in the motels.
    5. We have volunteers who will wrap the gifts and our Staff will deliver them.
  2. Host a drive to collect warm items.
    1. We are in need of blankets, as well as men’s and kids’ sizes of hats and gloves.
    2. Items should be new and unwrapped and delivered by 12/30.
  3. Host a drive to collect personal hygiene items (Bar Soap, Deodorant, Feminine Hygiene Products, Shampoo, Toothbrush Covers). Items should be new and unwrapped and delivered by 12/30.
  4. Provide $25 Gift Cards to local stores to add to Christmas Food Boxes for families. (Walmart is a favorite.) Needed by 12/11/23.

Please let Katie know if you have any questions. She can be reached at 607-317-5577 or via email.
Thank you for helping to make the holidays a bit brighter for our local families!
