Sponsor A Family is Bread & Life's annual holiday program. Thanks to our big-hearted donors, we raise $500,000 or more every year to provide brand-new gifts to children and young teens, and give each family a delicious, bountiful holiday meal to take home. Our homeless guests receive new gloves, hats, and socks to keep them warm during the cold winter months. We are aided by hundreds of volunteers who help us pack and distribute gifts and meals.

We are often told, "this is the best Christmas I've ever had."

This major fundraising program brings joy to the lives of everyone who participates: child, parent, volunteer.
