While the holidays can revolve around excitement and fulfillment, it can also be a time of great anxiety for families-in-need. COVID-19 has added an extra layer of anxiety for families-in-need, directly impacting their lives financially and mentally. This holiday season, our clients could use some extra special holiday cheer, especially with all of the unforeseen obstacles the pandemic has created this year. For the safety of everyone, including clients and staff, we will not be collecting toys this year. Instead, gift cards will allow our clients to safely purchase items of their choosing.
Foothill Family has had a holiday program in place to support its clients in greatest need for almost 20 years. Making Seasons Brighter, which evolved from Adopt-A-Family, began in 2016 and empowers families to be participants in their holiday experience, rather than recipient bystanders. This can make all the difference to position them as the providers that they strive to be for their families and helps them to feel supported and cared for during the holidays as they work toward a place of healing and hope for a brighter future.
