Christmas Seasonal Sharing

This year our Christmas Sharing will be vastly different from years past. It will not be so much fun shopping, as most agencies are requesting gift cards only for their clients. Sadly, it is much easier to sanitize a gift card than a sweet cuddly teddy bear! Also, the logistics for the agencies who usually rely on many volunteers to organize and deliver mountains of Christmas gifts are hard pressed to find volunteers willing to work during the pandemic. We will also be utilizing the online Sign Up Genius for the agency families, agency requests and individuals we are sponsoring. Please have gift cards in by December 1.
