DOUBLE YOUR DONATION TO THE HOLIDAY BASKETS PROGRAM
holiday season which means that it’s almost time to distribute the Holiday
Baskets, which is one of three programs organized by the Sun Valley REALTORS
December, we provide gift baskets to members of our community who are stretched
thin financially. The gift baskets include food for a holiday dinner plus
books, toys, toothbrushes and warm clothing for each of the kids.
the pandemic, instead of our traditional program we are now purchasing and
distributing gift certificates to the recipients. Like last year, we will be distributing
Atkinson’s gift cards for the holiday dinner and DL Evan’s Visa cards for the
kid’s toys and warm clothing. I’d personally like to thank Atkinsons and DL
Evans for their generous discount of the gift certificates. As they say, it
takes a village.
Last year we
had 100% more applicants than in 2019. In 2020, we gave food gift certificates
to 2,000 people and Visa gift cards to 1000 children. We anticipate similar
numbers this year.
Your past financial
support has enabled us keep this program going through a pretty tough time. Can
we rely on you again this year? Any donations made to the Holiday Baskets
program will be matched dollar for dollar by a local charitable foundation up
to a total of $5000. In other words, your generous donation will be doubled!
