Holiday Giving Program
It's that time of year again! Our annual Holiday Giving Program will be kicking off in November. Last year, with the help of community supporters, we were able to brighten the holidays for over 130 families! We have different ways for you to support our Holiday Giving Program. Pick the one that fits you! All donors will be sent a letter of thanks as well as a receipt for tax purposes.
Adopt a Family:
Our Adopt a Family Program is back! Each client who needs support during the holidays works with an advocate to submit a wish list of specific needs and preferences. Donors that wish to adopt a family or individual person can reach out to us at (or call 352-377-5690) and let us know what size family you would like to adopt and we will match you! We ask that "wishlists" be filled by December 10. These items will be dropped off at our Outreach Office where we will wrap and distribute to the adopted family. If you'd prefer to donate remotely, we can also provide you with a family's wishlist via Amazon. *We do not accept wrapped presents. 12/2 update: We still have a few families that hope to be matched with a donor!
Another way to participate in our Holiday Giving Program is to shop on our general Amazon Holiday Wish List today! These items will utilized to fill wish list gaps for families in need. Wrapping Supplies are always appreciated. We need all general donations by December 10.
As a reminder, if purchasing on Amazon, please use smile.amazon.com and select Peaceful Paths as your preferred organization. Amazon donates 0.5% of your purchase back to your preferred nonprofit!
If you prefer to donate dollars, we will use those funds to fill wishlist requests or provide families with gift cards so they have an opportunity to shop for their specific needs. Donate Here and Note HGP in comments section.
Pay it Forward Calendar:
Back by popular demand, we are bringing back the Pay if Forward Giving Calendar! This is a great way for families, businesses, classrooms and organizations to give back during the holiday season by donating what survivors need most!
You simply get a box or bag and add an item for each day of the giving calendar (November 1-November 30). Once it's filled, bring the completed box to our Outreach Center at Peaceful Paths. Donations can be received any day prior to December 22. You do not need to fulfill the whole calendar to participate!
Interested in Volunteering to help wrap presents at Peacefulp Paths!?
We will keep this site updated on opportunities to help during the holidays. Because of the Covid Pandemic, we will assess our volunteer opportunities as the holidays approach. We have a limited number of volunteer wrapping slots for the week of December 7 if you'd like to help, click HERE!
