Description

Although we try to provide a wide range of goods for our families, every family's needs are different and we can't always help them get everything they need. This is where you can help by collecting and donating Gift Cards for our families to earn. If you were not aware, our program is built around the concept of "Learn & Earn". All of our families must first "learn" by participating in our weekly activities, lessons, and/or presentations. They then "earn" tickets that can be spent on items from our "Treasure Chest Store" or on gift cards. Occasionally, we will give them as prizes for outstanding participants. Don't be intimidated by the idea of hosting a collection drive, it can be very simple. You just have to ask your classmates, religious group, colleagues, friends and/or family to help you collect gift cards. 

What's Needed To Complete

Gift Card Ideas: Visa or Mastercard (by FAR the best as they can be used almost anywhere) Safeway or other major grocery stores Target Walmart JcPenney, Macy's or other major department stores While our families appreciate all the support they can get, remember that it is best that the gift cards are as practical and versatile as possible.

How It Makes A Difference
