Thank you so much for your interest in serving alongside Giving Children Hope this Christmas! This is an amazing opportunity and we look forward to any and all support you can give to this endeavor. Here are the details:
We send out a Christmas wish list to each of the students on our We’ve Got Your Back program. They fill it out and return it to GCHope and we make it available to anyone who wants to sponsor a wish list. We expect to have around 1,500 wish lists that will need sponsoring, so please let us know if you would like one.
In addition, we want to give gifts to the siblings of students on our program. Since we won’t have wish lists for some of them, we are also accepting donations of toys for all ages. We expect to give around 4,000 presents to vulnerable children in Orange County this year!!!
Finally, with all of these presents to give, we will also need a tremendous amount of help to wrap all these gifts. We have six Wrapping Party dates for you to choose from. Because there is a great deal of interest in these Wrapping Parties, we ask that you limit your attendance to one of these dates. In addition, we are asking all Wrapping Party participants to either 1) sponsor a wish list, 2) donate a toy or 3) make a cash donation to Giving Children Hope.
Here are some important dates to know:
November 1 – Wish lists will be available for sponsorship after this date.
November 30 - All wish list sponsors must return gifts by this date.
December 3, 4, 5, 10, 11 & 12 - Wrapping Party Dates (6pm-9pm)
December 13-20, 2012 - Wrapped gifts to be delivered to students,
prior to their Christmas Break.
**The last school distribution is December 20th, so please get toys to us soon as possible. We will be accepting toys until December 19th.**
If you have additional questions or would like to participate in any of the above ways, please contact Drew Bryson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
