        Goal

        Host A Family helps families in need to provide holiday gifts, all done anonymously. 


        Host a Family 2020

        This year, Host a Family is doing things different to keep our families, hosts, and volunteers safe and healthy for the holiday season. Instead of asking hosts to go out in public to buy gifts and supplies and then bringing all of our sponsored families in to gather, we need to do things differently.


        Like each year, Host a Family will review applications for local families with children 17 and under.  



        How we'll use your donations

        In previous years, we asked hosts to pick individual families and buy gifts which were then distributed by volunteers. We don't feel like we can responsibly do that in a way that protects the health and safety of our hosts, volunteers and recipients.


        So, this year, your generous donation will be used to fulfill requests of a one or more local families by providing them gift cards to buy children gifts and other holiday needs.  In late November and early December, Host a Family will use the money to buy the gift cards and other essentials and distribute them to the recipients in a socially distanced and appropriate manner.


        We are asking recipient families to share pictures of their holiday purchases without any identifying information.
