The holidays can be a time of joy and togetherness, but for many low income families it is the time of year they dread. These families are already making tough decisions, such as paying their rent or purchasing groceries, so holiday gifts are often out of the question. 

With your help, hundreds of families can be supported this holiday season! The toys, clothing, gift cards, and household essentials, collected for some of Lifeline’s families in need, help to give them a little extra help, and a very happy holidays.

Last year we had the privilege of matching individuals, families, co-workers, neighbors, churches, and companies to our Lifeline community members in need of support. We saw firsthand how generous donors stepped up to ensure that not one person was forgotten, and for that we are truly grateful! Our Lifeline families were overwhelmed by your kindness too…here’s what some of them had to say:
