'Tis the Season for Sharing
Sponsor a Child for the Holidays
The holidays can be a difficult time for families struggling to stay one step ahead of daily expenses.  Many do not have the additional resources needed to provide their children with the celebrations and gifts that so many children enjoy during this time of year.
 
The generosity of Family Star supporters provided gifts to 140 children last year.  And, with your help again this year, we can bring bright and cheerful holidays to all of the children and families who need our support this holiday season. 
 
Sign up to provide a child with holiday gifts or a food basket to a family in need.  Contact Belia or Angelica for more information.
