2022 Holiday Giving Program Overview

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 150 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:

Each client who needs support during the holidays works with a Peaceful Paths advocate to submit a wish list of specific needs and preferences for their family. We then match clients with donors wishing to adopt a family. 

 

If you are interested in adopting a family, please reach out to us at holidays@peacefulpaths.org (or call 352-377-5690) and let us know what size family you would like to support and we will match you!  We ask that Adopt a Family donations be dropped off unwrapped to us no later than December 12 to our Outreach Office where we will wrap and distribute to the adopted family. Our Outreach Office is located at 2100 NW 53rd Ave, Suite A, Gainesville, FL 32653.

General Donations:

Another way to participate in our Holiday Giving Program is to shop on our general Amazon Holiday Wish List today! We have recently updated the Amazon Wishlist to reflect our high-demand items. These items will used to fill wish list gaps for families in need.  Wrapping Supplies are always appreciated. We need all general donations by December 12

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 non-profit.
