Foothill Family’s Making Seasons Brighter program aims to empower our clients during what can be a challenging holiday season. More than 90 percent of clients who receive treatment from Foothill Family live in poverty-level or low income households and have difficulty meeting even basic needs such as clothing, food, and housing. Without assistance, a great number of these families would not be able to celebrate the holidays at all.  

Because of your gift, Foothill Family clients and their families will have a special holiday experience where they can select their own holiday gifts for each other!

Thank You to our 2022 Making Seasons Brighter Sponsors

It’s Not Too Late For A Year End Gift


In November and December 2021, Foothill Family held its annual Making Seasons Brighter holiday give back program, which served more than 800 children and their family members through donations of gift cards, home essentials, and holiday gift bundles.

The event was a huge success, and we doubled our fundraising goal of $40,000 by raising over $80,000 in cash, gift cards, and in-kind donations!

About the Program

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.
