Sponsor a family this holiday season.

It's amazing how love from a stranger can give hope. The mission of the Hope for the Holidays gift drive is to restore hope to a family this holiday season. If you choose to sponsor a family today, you will be provided with a family size of your choice and their wish list. Hope for the Holidays supports children and families from Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Washington, and Westmoreland counties.

These families are dealing with many challenges and their first priority is securing their basic needs. We help with providing a holiday season filled with joy, happiness, and gifts!

Thanks to the generous support from our community, donors, and partners, all of our Hope for the Holidays families have been sponsored!
