Dear Community Member,

Season’s Greetings!  

Our organization has a wonderful yearly tradition of creating holiday baskets for low-income families who have a child with a disability.  And every year, we are humbled by the generosity of this community!  It is expensive for all families to raise a child, but research has shown that raising a child with special needs can more than quadruple the cost, making holidays exceptionally difficult.  We are thankful for the unwavering support donors have provided to our families in the past and we hope you will consider contributing again in one of these ways:

  • Sponsorship of a family – MDS/STRiVE will provide the sponsor with a wish list; the sponsor will purchase gifts and/or food for a specific family 
  • Cash donations that MDS/ STRiVE will use to purchase food, toys, and gift cards
  • Gift cards for groceries, toys, and essentials for the family

If you would like to sponsor a family or donate toward our holiday basket program this year, please contact me by December 3rd.

Please remember ANY contribution helps us reach our goal of supporting 40 families this holiday season. Thank you for helping make this season a more joyous time of year for a special family!
