Family Promise Holiday Shopping Event

Dear Volunteers and Donors,

We will hold our third annual Holiday Shopping event on Saturday, December 14th from 9 am to noon at Valencia United Methodist Church. We invite low-income and/or homeless families from other agencies and the 5 school districts to shop for cleaning supplies, hygiene products, clothes, toys, household products, and gift cards. Last year we served 534 people through 151 volunteers and gave $40,000 in donations away.

We are reaching out to you to see if you are willing to join us in this event. Listed below are examples of how you can participate:
