(Dec 2nd through 10th)
Gift of Hope is West Valley Community Services' annual holiday gift program, where we invite the community to help homeless and low-income families celebrate the holiday season.
This holiday season, Gift of Hope will provide more than 300 homeless and low-income families with items they need, including jackets, blankets, pillows, microwaves, vacuums, and items such as jackets and toys for their children.
We need your help to bring the Gift of Hope to families struggling to build self-sufficient, thriving lives in the west valley. Individuals, families, community groups, and corporate teams can join together to adopt a family or families and help make their holiday wish come true.
For more information about adopting a family or donating to the Gift of Hope Program, please visit:
We hope you will give the gift of hope to families struggling to survive in our community. Thank you so much for your support...and happy holidays to you and your family!
