Angel Tree provides for homeless families this holiday

Supporting the Angel Tree is a holiday tradition for many GAAR Members. The program provides gifts and food baskets to Title 1 Homeless children who attend school even though their families may be homeless. Traditionally, we've just provided for the students, but for the second year - we've added their families to the list as financial hardships have increased in our community. 

This season, YPN will be spearheading the program and is asking GAAR Members and Affiliates to help 21 families.

If your company has not already adopted a family and you want to help, here’s how:
  1. Click this link to view Families
  2. Select a Family to Adopt
  3. View Families Needs/Requests
  4. AFTER selecting your Family - your email confirmation will have a PDF attached with your family details & requests. Print or save for your shopping trip.
  5. Drop off unwrapped gifts at GAAR by Tuesday, December 7th
And if you don’t have time to shop, you can help by providing:
  • Walmart Gift Cards
  • Fast Food Gift Cards (many families are in motels without kitchens)
  • An Online Donation (to be used for gift cards for groceries or fast food or additional items to supplement a family's gifts as needed)
Thank you for generously participating in the Angel Tree Program!
