 Adopt a child for Christmas

"An opportunity to provide Christmas gifts for local children whose families are facing financial challenges."

 

Families are reaching out to us as they struggle with their finances. Our goal, just as in the past 21 years, is to ensure some Christmas Gifts for their children. We anticipate providing for approximately 330 children. With your help, last year we provided for 316.

During the past 2 COVID years, donors provided $75 Walmart Gift Cards for each child, along with some additional clothing, toys and games. This year we are offering 2 options.

--You may provide a $75 Walmart Gift Card per child.

-or-

--we will provide you with a shopping list we have gathered from their parent or guardian and you can shop.

 

We are offering you this choice because we know some donors may not want to go into stores during this busy Holiday Season. You can call (847) 395-0309 or email at info@openarmsmission.org to let us know how many children you want to sponsor. We will then match you with a family and provide the needed information. Again our number is (847) 395-0309. You may leave a message or Judy and Marytherese are in the office Tues, Thurs or Fri mornings 8am - noon and Tues, Wed or Thurs 4:30 to 6:30.
