Be an angel! Each holiday season we partner with the Bethel Foundation and adopt a family in need.
The Bethel Foundation is a wonderful resource for single mothers.
This faith-based organization helps these moms get back on their feet by providing support with mentoring, rehabilitation and quality housing.
They carefully pre-screen applicants for the program, selecting those with the greatest need.
This year we’ve adopted a single mom with four children:
- 15 year old boy – gift cards for clothing and iTunes
- 12 year old boy – a little scientist who likes experiments and books on facts, also needing gift cards for clothing
- 4 year old boy – loves Spiderman, Johnny Test, and Power Rangers, yet Ninja Turtles are his favorites
- newborn boy – needs a play mat for the floor, bottles, size 1 diapers and other baby basics
We can’t do it alone! You can help by donating gift cards (WalMart, Target, Amazon, etc) or cash. We have set up a place on our website for cash donations for those who can’t make it in the store.
Or if you prefer to shop for specific items on their list, please email or call for an updated wish list so we don’t all go out and buy the same thing.
This year we’re throwing two special Holiday Tea Parties to thank everyone who lends a helping hand. Bring any donation for our adopted family to the party and receive a special handmade ornament. We will also be giving away a fabulous door prize during each party.
If you can’t make the party, everyone who donates will also be entered to win a $100 SWAK gift card, with one entry for every dollar donated. The winner of the gift card will be announced on Christmas Eve.
This is our third year to participate in this program. It is always more joyous to give than receive, and collectively we were able to make one family’s Christmas extra special last year. Let’s do it again!
