INTERFAITH ANNOUNCES COMMUNITY-WIDE HOLIDAY GIVING CAMPAIGN

THE WOODLANDS, TX (Monday, November 8, 2021) – As the 2021 holiday season approaches, Interfaith of The Woodlands is making plans to assist families, children and seniors in need through the annual Interfaith Holiday GIVING programs.

Interfaith invites our community to celebrate with the gift of giving by participating in the Holiday GIVING programs, each of which helps brighten the holiday season with gifts and food for our neighbors in need: Adopt-A-Family, Toy Drive, and Gifts For Seniors. Each program enables Interfaith, with the help of our generous community and volunteers, to meet the very specific needs of those in need this holiday season.

Adopt-A-Family program matches community sponsors to families in need of help. Interfaith provides a list of gift ideas for the sponsored family members. Holiday Toy Drive offers the community an opportunity to collect toys for children of all ages. Families requesting assistance are able to choose gifts for their children from a variety of donated toys. Gifts for Seniors program provides hand-delivered holiday gifts to senior adults, ages 62 and older, in need of holiday cheer.

Interfaith invites all community members to hold food drives and collect non-perishable items to fill our pantry shelves. This is especially a great time to collect holiday food items.

In addition, Interfaith will be accepting Walmart gift cards in $25 increments and grocery gift cards in $20 increments to distribute to our families and seniors for holiday assistance. If your business or organization would like to hold a food, toy or gift card drive, Interfaith can provide you with a list of suggestions.
