Sample Gift Tag with a Families' Wish List

This holiday season, you can help create memories or start traditions for
at-risk young people and their families by taking part in Stanford Home’s Holiday Gift Card Drive.

The holidays are often a difficult time for families who are struggling. Many of our families are not able to give their children the festive, joy-filled experience they want and deserve. Providing families with gift cards allows them to create their own holiday that is meaningful to them while strengthening their relationships.

Please consider adopting a family to grant their holiday wishes and spread a little hope and cheer this season!   

Gift cards needed:

  • Gift cards for gas or groceriesMake the holidays brighter and tastier by allowing our families to travel or prepare holiday meals together.
  • TicketsProvide activities for families to participate in together – movies, bowling, ice skating, miniature golfing.
