Sponsor a family

Towards the end of October, if you have signed up to sponsor a family, you will receive a Wish List for the family. We have families of all sizes, from one individual to ten or more, and we will do our best to accommodate any size request. 

There are different ways in which you can sponsor a family:

Sponsor a Family

  • Purchase gifts and deliver them to our Holiday Distribution Center at Woodcrest Church in December along with a gift card or monetary donation for food. VAC will use the monetary donation to write a voucher to be used at a grocery store.
  • Purchase gift certificates or gift cards at local grocery and department stores and bring them to VAC before November 24, if possible. VAC will provide them to the family.
  • Provide VAC with a monetary donation. VAC will then write vouchers to local grocery and department stores to let the family do their own shopping

Donate to the Holiday Program directly

Donate an amount that is manageable for your family to contribute. VAC will use these funds to cover any families that were not directly sponsored and provide shopping vouchers to let the family do their own shopping. This can be done through the VAC website below or a check can be mailed or dropped off to the VAC office.

If you choose to sponsor a family, we request that you provide $20 per family member for a holiday meal and at least one new gift per family member who is under the age of 18, adult 65 or older, or an adult with a disability.
