Holiday Giving Fund

This Holiday Season, Give the Gift That Makes It Home

All families yearn for the comfort and warmth of a home to call their own. Family Promise offers the stability of temporary shelter and wrap-around support to homeless working families on their journey toward making this a reality.

Family Promise needs your help to provide these vital services to families—during the holidays and throughout the year—in order for them to break the cycle of homelessness for themselves, their children, and generations to come. You can make the biggest impact with a donation to the Holiday Giving Fund. Please donate today.

Thank you for brightening the lives of homeless families during these especially challenging times.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday!

More Ways to Give for the Holidays
Gift cards to major retailers not only empower parents to choose the perfect holiday gift for their child, but also provide their families with the necessary items they need throughout the year.  Please consider donating denominations of $25 or more of the following:

  • Amazon
  • Target
  • Walmart
  • Kohls
  • J. Maxx & Marshalls
  • Grocery stores (Stop & Shop, Shoprite, Aldi)
  • Gas station gift cards
  • Home Depot
  • Lowe’s Home Improvement
  • Uber & Lyft

Give Families a Big Night Out (or In!)
Last year, gatherings outside of the home were limited due to the pandemic. Now, as restrictions have been lifted, families can once again get together to enjoy a nice dinner at a sit-down restaurant. Help give families a special evening out by donating gift cards of $25 or more to the following:

  • Applebee’s
  • Chili’s
  • Olive Garden
  • Outback Steakhouse

UberEats, GrubHub, DoorDash, and Seamless gift cards are also great for families who are craving their favorite dish but cannot venture out to a restaurant.

Additionally, streaming services provide entertainment for kids and relief for tired parents after a long day of work, as well as an opportunity to bond as a family while watching their favorite movies and shows in the comfort of their own home. Many services can cost $20 or more a month, which is a burden on struggling families. Please consider donating a Netflix or Hulu gift card to cover this luxury.
