Holiday Giving Fund

Give comfort and joy to a homeless family.

Homeless, working families need your help every single day of the year.
However, during the holiday season, there are several opportunities for you to support our families in a special way:

The most impactful way you can help is with a monetary donation of any amount to the Holiday Giving Fund. This will provide Comfort and Joy – such simple but precious things – to the homeless working families we serve. 

Your gift will give comfort to a family by providing safe, warm shelter and support. Keeping our programs going through the holidays and all year round is one of the best ways to help families who are experiencing homelessness.

Your gift will give joy to a family by providing gift cards so that parents in our programs can buy gifts of their own choosing for their children. Parents know best what their kids want and need, so we thank you for empowering them to make that choice.

Special Opportunity for Businesses and Corporations!

The holidays are a great time to give back to the community in which you do business. In recognition of your gift of $1,000 or more to the Family Promise Holiday Giving Fund, your company will receive:

  • Logo recognition on this web page
  • Recognition in our e-newsletter (distributed to nearly 4,000 volunteers, donors and friends)
  • Recognition in a dedicated Facebook post featuring a photo and/or company logo.

More Ways to Give for the Holidays…

Gift Cards!

Donations of gift cards are always welcome and empower parents to buy gifts their children want and need. We suggest gift cards in denominations of $25 or more to the following:

  • Amazon
  • Barnes & Noble
  • Kohl’s
  • Target
  • Walmart
  • Visa/MC cards
  • Gas cards

Family Dinner Out

Our families come in all ages, shapes, and sizes, but one thing we all enjoy is dinner out with the ones we love. Give the gift of a family night out, and help create new, joyful memories. Suggestions include family-friendly franchise restaurants that are located throughout the county: Applebees, Outback Steakhouse, Olive Garden, Chili’s, etc. Denominations of $50 or more, please.

Family Fun

Families in our programs are working hard to earn more money, and save what they earn. An afternoon of family fun can be costly and is often not in the budget. A donation for a family fun outing is a gift that provides not only a great day out for the family, but lasting memories as well – especially over winter vacation! We suggest gift cards/certificates of at least $50 to the following establishments:

  •  AMC Theaters
  • Bowler City, Hackensack
  • Ice House of NJ, Hackensack
  • Chuck E. Cheese
  • Dave & Busters

Donations of gift cards or checks may be mailed or delivered to:

Family Promise of Bergen County
100 Dayton Street
Ridgewood, NJ 07470

Home for the Holidays

It is a great day when a Family Promise family has made enough progress to move into one of our New Leaf apartments – or an apartment of their own! At this time of year, it is even more special for them to have a home of their own for the holidays. Donations of NEW (preferably in the box/wrapper/with tags) items to stock an apartment for a family are a welcome. Click here for a list of items needed.

Thank You and Happy Holidays!
