Sponsor a Family

Sadly, things get tough for many of the families we serve. And it is the children who suffer the most – simply because after the bills are paid, there isn’t much income left over for presents. That’s the reality for so many of the families we serve. Yet with your generosity, you can provide hope for the holidays! We invite you to sponsor one of our neediest families this year by providing Christmas gifts for the children.

Tasha and Her Family

You can make this a holiday to remember for Tasha and her family. Tasha is a single mother who is taking care of her own three children who attend our LightHouse program, as well as her five nieces and nephews. Her family knows struggle all too well. After taking in her nieces and nephews as her own, Tasha works very hard to provide basic necessities for each child. Last year, she struggled to ensure that each of them had just one gift to open Christmas morning. You can help families, like Tasha, today and make this a Christmas to remember for those who find their way to us. 

Here’s How It Works:

  • Contact us and Volunteers of America will provide you a family’s wish list

  • Purchase gifts for children (we suggest $50 limit per child)

  • Mark the gifts with the child’s name and family code

  • Bring UNWRAPPED gifts between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Dec. 11 & 12 to First United Methodist Church Shreveport.

  • Fill out the in-kind donation form, and bring it with you when you drop off the gifts. We’ll send you an acknowledgment form in the mail.

  • If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to call!
