While there are many ways you can make a difference this holiday season, here are two ways you can help those in need right here in Forsyth County!
Adopt-A-Family for Christmas Program
The Adopt-A-Family for Christmas Program matches families served by Family Haven with individual or group sponsors. When a match is made, the family’s wish list is sent to the sponsor. Each family completes their wish list identifying items that they may need or want. The wish list includes sizes for each family member for clothing items and shoes. Also, the list includes a gift or toy item for each family member. While you may wish to include additional items not listed on the wish list, we ask that sponsors provide only items that are listed to ensure consistency across families. Family Haven will ensure that families receive their gifts during the week before Christmas.
We ask that all wish list items are unwrapped and taken to drop off site by December 13, 2013. Sponsors are welcome to provide wrapping paper to Family Haven for gift wrapping. All wish list items can be taken to our thrift store location at 598 Veterans Memorial Blvd, Cumming, Georgia 30040.
Should you wish to Adopt-A-Family this year, please contact Family Haven at 770-889-6384 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Great DEAL
Simply make a monetary donation at the Forsyth County Family Haven thrift store (located at 598 Veteran’s Memorial Blvd.) and in return, you’ll be given a playing card. Sign it and the folks at the Thrift Store will happily display it. That’s it!
Later, the signed cards are given to the shelter where families can use them to play Crazy Eights, Solitaire, and more, all the while seeing the signatures of those who cared enough to help. All proceeds will benefit the families we serve this holiday.
Forsyth County Family Haven is an advocate for victims and families of domestic violence providing shelter, programs and community education to end the cycle of violence.
I hope you will consider participating in one of these worthy programs.
