Services - Holiday Assistance
Get Holiday Assistance
The CAC Holiday Program provides gift cards for children and food for families and individuals. Gift cards for holiday gifts are provided to children ages newborn to 18 years old. Families and individuals receive grocery store gift cards and extra food from our food pantry in addition to regular food pantry visits. CAC holiday programs are funded by donors and therefore quantities may be limited. The Holiday Program is open to existing CAC clients. Clients will receive registration information from CAC.
Give Holiday Assistance
The Holiday Program is designed to give an extra bit of help during the Holiday season to local families who have come to CAC during the past year for assistance. Many times families who are struggling to get by do not have extra income for holiday gifts or celebrations. Through the generosity of donors, CAC provides families and individuals in need the means to celebrate the season. CAC’s holiday program is completely donor dependent, providing holiday food to about 500 families and gift cards to about 1,300 children.
Adopt-a-Family for the Holidays!
You can make a child’s holiday season a little happier! Make a donation to give holiday gift cards to children of local families in need through CAC. View families available for adoption on our website beginning in early November. Select the family you want to give gift cards to and make your donation online on CAC’s donation webpage. Donors are asked to donate a minimum of $30 per child. CAC will buy and distribute gift cards to the families that were adopted.
Give Holiday Food Gift Cards
Grocery store gifts cards give families the gift of choice for their holiday celebrations! Please give Publix & Kroger gift cards in denominations of $10, $20 and $30. $10 helps an individual, $20 helps a couple and $30 helps a family. Bring cards to CAC or donate online and designate your contribution to “food.”
Give Food or Hold a Holiday Food Drive
Give food for the CAC Food Pantry and help local families with groceries this holiday season. Please deliver food donations by December 1 if possible.
