Sponsor a Foundation Communities Family

This is a great way to engage your family, colleagues, friends, neighbors, congregation or book club in a fun, rewarding group service activity. We will match you with a family, send their wish list to you and help coordinate delivery to the property staff.

To participate, all sponsor forms must be submitted by Thursday, December 5. Sponsor sign ups received by Friday, November 22 will be matched to a family prior to Thanksgiving. Deliveries will be accepted by appointment between December 9-16.

Visit the Sponsor Registration Page to review our guidelines and sign up.

 

“My boys and I now consider this part of our family’s Christmas tradition. It means so much for us to participate.” -Elizabeth S.
