Gifts of Hope 2021 – Staff Only


Staff Referrals & Instructions

Because of the generosity of hundreds of volunteers and sponsors over the years, we have been able to provide holiday gifts for our children and families who need it most. Our supporters will be signing up over the next couple of months to sponsor children or host a toy drive. Starting in November, Marketing and Development will be working with the “Gifts of Hope” contacts at each site to match our referred children with sponsors and gifts that come in. Please use the form below to submit your referrals by 5pm on October 31st. This form will come down completely at 5:00 PM on 11/12/21. Those who are submitted by the original deadline will receive top priority and any wishes that come in between the 1st and the 12th will be considered if we have donors or items left.

Points of Contact Per Site:

Some important reminders…

  • There are NO EXCEPTIONS for late submissions.
  • The form must be completed by staff, not clients.
  • Staff have the donor complete an In-Kind Donation Form each time they collect gifts from a donor. (Instructions Below)
  • Each family must be receiving services through the end of the year and are not receiving gifts through another program/agency/service.
  • Adults CANNOT be referred, but children under age 18 can be submitted within the same household. The only exception are youth in our Young Adult Services.
  • Do not submit referrals with requests for expensive items (i.e. game systems, phones, tablets, etc.). Items must not exceed a $50 value.
