The holidays can be a tough time for Valley families struggling to make ends meet. For 11 consecutive years, Esperança has coordinated a Christmas Angel program to make sure low-income families have gifts for the holidays and we are looking for sponsors for this year’s program.
Sponsors will receive a “wish list” from the family they are partnered with and can purchase new gifts or make a cash contribution and Esperança’s Anchors of Hope, a group of young professional volunteers or staff, will do the shopping for the family. Previous sponsors have included companies, churches, clubs, professional organizations and individuals. Sponsors will be matched by Nov. 15 and gifts will be collected at Esperança by Dec. 16. Esperança will distribute the gifts to families on Dec. 20.
For more information or to become a sponsor, call Maria Valenzuela at (602) 252-7772 EXT. 101 or via email at [email protected]
