Grant a Holiday Wish

Posted by on Nov 16, 2017 in News | 0 comments

Each year Hathaway-Sycamores provides gifts and special holiday activities for approximately 500 children. But we can’t do it alone, we need you to help make their holiday wishes come true.
Holidays at Hathaway-Sycamores

For many of the children, these gifts will be their only presents this holiday season.

There are many ways you can help,

including making a year-end donation.

Click here to make an online donation. If you prefer, mail your donation to:

840 N. Avenue 66
Los Angeles, CA 90042

Other ways to grant a holiday wish include:

Purchase a gift for a child: 

Gifts should be unwrapped and non-violent. We need toys and gifts appropriate for children ages 0 to 18 years. Many of our children are teenagers. Gift certificates (Target, Best Buy, Toys R Us, Bath and Body Works, Footlocker, etc.) are always an excellent choice. Movie passes, electronic and board games (nothing over a “G” rating), sports equipment, DVDs (“G” or “PG” rating) model kits (level 1&2) and art supplies are additional options.

Adopt a Family and provide gifts, food and household items: 

Bring joy to a family in need this Holiday Season by adopting a family. We will provide you with brief profiles of families that we are seeking to match with donors. This will give you a rough idea of what the family needs. The kids are the first priority. It is up to you if you would like to provide a gift of any size to the adults in the household. Most parents just want to see their kids with something to open Christmas morning. Grocery store gift certificates such as Ralphs and Vons/Pavillions are vital for our families in need. The average donation per family is $250, but how much you spend is completely up to you. Many donors combine with friends to adopt a family or we can also mix and match donations at our end, so no donation is too small. For more information, or if you would like to participate in our Holiday Family Adoption Program, please email or call Stephanie Barreiro at (323) 257-9600 ext. 7224. amazonsmile
