And you don’t have to do it alone! You can get a group together to adopt a youth or family in crisis and split the wish list between yourselves. In doing so, you are helping out others during the holidays and bringing together your own friends and family for a great time.
Last year some of our donors held Blue Santa parties. One group that had a mom and a baby decided to split the list up according to each person’s interest. Since the mom was interested in cooking, one of donors who loved to cook decided to buy the presents on the wish list that releated to cooking. Others in the group just couldn’t resist buying cute baby presents.
Another fun idea is to go out and buy the presents on the lists and then hold holiday wrapping parties. During these parties, you can exchange wrapping paper, ribbon, stories, and fun. Then, you can deliver the gifts to LifeWorks.
These are just a few ideas for how you can help out a youth or family and get into the holiday spirit. For more information on how you can become a donor for Project Holiday Help, visit the LifeWorks website at www.lifeworksweb.org.
