Our families are required to complete an application explaining their situation and their family income. These parents are working but do not have the funds to provide their children Christmas, but as all parents they would do what they could, which would cause additional stress to the family. HOPE of the Grand Valley will receive applications from these families and review each application. Our focus is to fill the gaps with our working parents with children that are struggling to make ends meet. We will be leaving invitations to apply at our local business with minimum wage employees. If you know of a family in need, please encourage them to apply for Adopt a Family for Christmas. Application for Christmas available October 15th.
Families will be chosen by qualifications as we are doing our best to fill the gap and helping our underemployed families. 1. Children under the age of 14 in your home fulltime. 2. At least one working adult in your family (most recent paystub required with application) 3. Do not receive food (SNAP), TANF or housing assistance because you make a little too much income 4. Each family will be screened and interviewed in the application process
God bless you all!
A hand up, not a hand out
