Adopt-A-Family provides a way to support local families in our community who could use a little extra help this Christmas providing meaningful gifts for their children. WestGate Church partners with families in our own church as well as partners with local schools in our community to identify families going through financial hardship. Our goal is to help parents and families going through a tough season make Christmas a time of joy and generosity.
CHANGES TO THE WAY WE'RE DOING THINGS:
As a result of conversations with our partner organizations, we're changing the way we do Adopt-A-Family.
This year, we are ONLY asking for gift cards for places like Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, Kohl’s, Safeway ($35-40 per child). This allows the parents to shop for the gift themselves, because no one knows what their kids want and need better than the parents. These packages of Gift Cards will be dropped off at the participating schools. If you'd like to personalize your gift, you can buy personalized stocking stuffers for the kids.
