Giving in 2010

Before I commit to the number of families we will adopt, I need feedback from you! We must relay our interest to the involved organizations as soon as possible. screen-shot-2010-11-15-at-80953-pmGift donations will be due in ahead of the Christmas holiday in order to allow time to deliver the packages to the families. Cash donations are welcome as well (we will do the shopping for you) or you can donate online through our PayPal Link (see sidebar). All donations will be anonymous. Gifts do not have to be large in scale to make a difference. If you’re unable to donate financially, we would also appreciate your volunteer efforts regarding gift wrapping, etc. Check below for a volunteer interest inventory and the PayPal link.

Please contact Amy Patterson if you are interested in adopting a family, part of a family, or would like to give a cash donation. If you use PayPal, please add this in the memo when you checkout. I know our efforts will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your support!
