What is on the Family Promise "Wish List" ?

 

 

Walmart, Publix, and Gas station gift cards in $10,$20, $25 increments...and here is why:

 

So often our families have had their dignity stripped when they lose everything to eviction because of circumstances like illness, pregnancy, and domestic violence.

 

Although they are EXTREMELY grateful for items donated, the ability to go into a store and pick out something in their own size, or food they enjoy, or to finally be able to pay for gas for their car (if they have one), is HUGE for their self esteem and ability to begin healing from the trauma of homelessness.

 

When given a gift card, we ask each family to provide receipts back to staff to ensure gift card uses coincide with their housing stability goals. While gift cards may be a "hard sell" because people this time of year want to give something tangible, this is truly one of the best things they can give our families: dignity and independence. 

Other acute needs include: 

  • Toilet tissue and paper towels

  • Deodorant

  • Feminine Pads

  • Razors and Shave Cream

  • Toothbrushes and Toothpaste

  • Liquid dish soap

  • Over the counter medicine such as Tylenol (adult and child), flu relief, digestive relief

  • New bath towels and wash cloths, and new queen sized pillows.

Other need:

Operable cars for our clients that have none. This life-changing donation can mean job stability for many of our guests. 

Thank you so much for your support!
