Food Drive

Thanksgiving ‘Give A Gift Card’ Drive

The families in our grief and wish programs are often struggling financially due to the death of the main wage earner, or because of the mountain of medical bills associated with the illness of their child. Would you like to help these families enjoy a special meal on Thanksgiving Day? You probably know someone – – in your family, a co-worker, neighbor, friend, business associate, corporate office or maybe a group of individuals who can help sponsor the New Hope for Kids Thanksgiving ‘Give A Gift Card’ Drive.

During our 2013 Thanksgiving ‘Give a Gift Card Drive’ we will gather grocery store gift cards instead of canned goods for the families in our programs who need a little extra help. (We distributed food gift cards to over 300 families in 2012!) You may purchase a gift card of any amount from Wal-Mart, Publix or Winn Dixie and drop it off at New Hope for Kids Center for Grieving Children now through November 21st or click below to make a donation to help purchase gift cards.
