If you are a family in town and need help or know someone who does, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org All requests and donation are kept confidential. We all need help sometimes in our lives. If you are in need, please do not feel anything but relief that you will have one less problem.
We are asking that anyone who knows of a family that could use a little help, please contacts us. We already have generous donors like the El Segundo Kiwanis Club who have already pledged to make a contribution that will be helpful in meeting the needs of some of the families, but we will need help with gifts, gift cards, and food staples.
Because of Covid, many people who have donated or receive gifts through local toy campaign will not be able to do so this year as many campaigns are not collecting.
If you would like to help, please pass our contact anyone who could use some help. Last year we contacted the schools and they passed on lists from families in our schools.
We are happy to pick up the items or we have a number of drop off points around town.
Last year the Scout House Association helped us arrange for trees to be provided by those who would like to purchase a tree for one of the families. This year they need your support as well. They will be selling trees this year with a modified system.
Once we begin to collect kid’s letters to Santa, we will post the list on our what we need page so people can choose to buy a gift or two or adopt an entire family.
I am so thankful to all who have given over the past few years. You cannot even begin to imagine the amount tears shed in happiness by parents who are just having a very bad time through no fault of their own.
I have to say there is such an emotional outpouring by many of the donors as well. Some are fulfilling a pledge that they made years ago to repay the kindness of a stranger who helped them when they were in need.
Every single one of the families who receive the gifts, pledge through tears that they too will one day repay the kindness of the people in our town.
I am sharing this today as I sometimes feel guilty for receiving the gratitude of these amazing parents for contributions made by others. So I want to thank everyone again for their past generosity and to those who will consider helping this year as well.
