The holidays are a time for joy and laughter, to come together with family and friends and enjoy the season. But for low-income families struggling to make ends meet, the holidays are a time of extra stress.
Holiday Friends is a gift-giving program hosted by Beyond Housing that ensures that low-income families have a little something extra under the tree. Each year, people across the St. Louis region adopt families to make sure they have gifts for the holidays, and to acknowledge their hard work to forge better lives for themselves.
Pledge to buy gifts for children in the St. Louis area. When you sign up, we will provide you with a wish list from each family. In the past, people have given 3+ items with a total value of $50 to $100 per child. These gifts can be practical, educational, or simply fun.
Or, get your friends, church group or work involved and come together over the holiday season to collect gifts or raise money that will go directly to needy families.View Holiday Gift Ideas
Please drop off the unwrapped gifts on December 17th or 18th from 7 AM – 7 PM at Beyond Housing located at 6506 Wright Way, Pine Lawn, MO 63121.
