It’s that time of year when we begin focusing on the upcoming Christmas holidays. Unfortunately, too many families in our nearby neighborhoods will wake-up Christmas morning without enough food in their pantry, and children will miss the thrill of Santa’s visit.
Christmas Providers, a non-profit organization serving the community for over 30 years, sponsors an “Adopt-a-Family” program. Christmas Providers fulfill the Christmas wishes of children in the Hurst-Euless-Bedford and Birdville Independent School Districts.
If you’d like to become a Provider this year, minimum requirements are as follows:
• Provide at least one (1) wrapped reasonably priced gift for each child in the adopted family. A list of requested gift ideas, including clothing sizes, as recommended by the child’s parent/guardian, will be provided to you for your consideration.
• Provide a meat for Christmas dinner (ham or turkey recommended).
• Pick up a box of canned goods and a grocery gift card prepared by Christmas Providers’ volunteers at our distribution center (see information below).
• Deliver all the above items directly to the adopted family prior to Christmas Eve.
Please help us help others.
