2020 Holiday Adopt-a-Family Program
In 2019, Fearless! was able to provide gifts for 400 children from 172 individual families.
400 is an incredible number, and we owe that success to you: our community.
Throughout the year, we depend on the support of our friends and neighbors to help us provide services to individuals and families in Orange and Sullivan Counties affected and displaced by interpersonal violence and trafficking. During the holiday season, we find added reason to work closely with our community to bring the holiday spirit to those who need to know they are not alone. We invite you to participate in the season of giving with Fearless! through our Holiday Adopt-a-Family Program.
Helping one family at a time, in our own neighborhood: it’s how we make a difference and initiate change.
Here are some other ways to help support families that seek our services later in the season:
- Gifts for tweens & teens, such as board games, craft kits, STEM/science kits, makeup/nail art sets, sports balls, etc.
- Gift cards for grocery stores, Target, Walmart, etc. to help with holiday meals and basic needs.
- Toiletry gift sets.
- Comfy cozy items like socks, pajama sets, slippers, and bathrobes for adults and kids to help support our shelter program.
- "Welcome Baskets" for our shelter with brand new items that families can eventually take with them when they transition out of shelter and on to the next step in their journey. These are: a laundry basket or bag containing a set of twin size sheets, a comforter or blanket, a bed pillow, a bath towel, and a wash cloth. Did you know? We are about to open doors on a newly-constructed 20-bed residence in early 2021 and are in need of welcome baskets to supply our new facility.
