Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Want to do something nice? Purchase a pair of cozy, new children’s pajamas and a stuffed animal, and send them to an American child living in poverty. Help make a child in need feel secure and cared for! Click here to learn more.
A few ideas:
- Host a “Stuffed Shirt” event with friends or co-workers and provide personal care items for the homeless.
- Host a Birthday Box event and provide a “birthday in a box” for children in need.
- Host a “Fill Me Up” Canned Food Drive for your neighborhood food pantry… we’ll link you up!
- Or gather your friends and neighbors and refresh your wardrobe through Swap for a Cause… and help F-to-F at the same time.
In an effort to make giving easy and “out-of-the-box,” we’ve created “Food on the Move!” – a simple way for people moving from one home to another to “share their bounty” on moving day! Families cleaning out kitchen cupboards as they pack up to move can fill a shopping bag with unwanted nonperishable food items and hang it on their front doorknob, and their realtor will pick it up for a local food pantry. Simple giving. Realtors and movers… Learn more here.
Please join our efforts to make the holidays bright for families struggling to get by this winter season….the Family-to-Family way! Here are a few hands-on ways you and your family can help.
- STUFF A STOCKING for a child in need.
- Join F-to-F’s annual unwrapped TOY DRIVE and make it possible for a mom or dad in poverty to “shop” for just the right gift for their child.
- Provide your children with a concrete, meaningful way to give to another child — join GIVE IT UP FOR KIDS IN NEED!
Another option….let us do the shopping for you, by packing up and sending a “BOX OF HOLIDAY CHEER” to a family in need.
Or consider one of our COMPASSIONATE GIFT ALTERNATIVES made in the name of a friend, colleague or loved one.
