Families who are getting gift cards, deadline is Sat Dec 16th, 12:00 – 2pm

Do you drive or can you get a ride if you live close by Mendota? Most gift cards will be from Target, Cub, Walmart. Largers famlies will get one gift card to share with your family, may not be Target? Depends on how many children you have?

For those of you still going to donate, please put the amount on the gift card. Otherwise we need to call for the amount.

I have emailed many families those famlies will recieve gift cards for sure about 96 Childrenso far.

Weather it is mailed, pickup, or venmo or paypal.

Helping families is a lot of work. I love helping people / famlies in need.

Please go to our website for any questions.

We have tripled the families this year then the last two years.

We still can help more children with more gift cards.

If you can not get out to buy gift cards. You can send money with Venmo or Paypal write on the donation that is is for gift cards. And I will go buy them.

We did get alot of gift cards at the Christmas party, but not enough for all the families or just give less to each family.
