As you may have noticed in our last blog post, we were asking for community members to help make the holidays a little brighter for those who are struggling to provide for their families! We are so proud and honored to say that we’ve completed our annual Gift Card Drive benefiting FamilyForward and the community far exceeded our expectations!
We asked community members to donate money or gift cards from local stores, allowing these families to pick out their own gifts, giving them a sense of pride and independence during a difficult time.
We received $13,530 in donations, and matched the donation dollar for dollar, making the total donated to FamilyForward $27,060! Incredible!
All of us at For Papa’s Sake would like to thank everyone who generously donated to the Gift Card drive, making it a tremendous success and an amazing gift for many families in need. We couldn’t do it without you.” – Becky Reel
FamilyForward is a local non-profit that helps low-income, working parents who face incredible obstacles as they struggle to provide for their families and live their best lives. They help families reach financial and career goals and gain skills to rise above poverty. Each Holiday season, they sponsor families and help to provide them with funds to get through the Holidays and provide gifts for their families.
