We DO HAVE A DOUBLE MATCH!!!!! The Double Match is from now through the end of November. From now until November 30th, your money will be matched twice! So if you donate $25, it immediately becomes $50 then $100! Isn’t that a blessing!
100% of your donation goes to HOPE FOR CHRISTMAS and even more specifically to the family/senior you want to help if you choose to help a specific family. We have NO overhead or administrative costs, so 100% of your donation goes to Hope for Christmas. We send out donation receipts after Hope for Christmas is completed, unless you need it earlier.
Here are a few of the stories of the seniors. Please pray for these seniors and if you can help by adopting one, donating financially, donating wrapping paper/tape, or helping with the wrapping that is awesome! If helping in any of those ways isn't in your budget, that's ok - you can pray.
PLEASE - if you see a family or senior you want to adopt, please let us know so we may give you their sizes, favorite colors, more wants/needs, etc. Thank you for your generosity! YOU ARE A BLESSING!

Thank you for helping the HOPE FOR CHRISTMAS families! They are families just like you and I. They do not qualify for other help. We only help a family one time for Christmas and confirm their stories with doctors, attorneys, funeral homes, churches, businesses, etc. that referred them. All of our families are referred. Each family is interviewed individually.
