We Think At The Crossroads Can
Support At The Crossroads Holiday Party' Campaign while helping homeless youth
We need to raise $12,000!
This is the amount that it will cost to make sure that all of ATC's clients get a personalized gift for the holidays, and get a nice meal at our holiday parties! Check out pictures of past holiday parties below!
Each personalized gift costs $20, general gifts cost $10, and every meal costs $8.
Give whatever you can; don't worry about the amount!
OTHER HOLIDAY NEEDS:
• You can also donate unused gift cards to At The Crossroads at 333 Valencia Street, Suite 320, SF, CA 94103
• Also, if you would like to bake treats for the holiday parties (Dec 17 and 19), send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
I chose this goal because
Every year, ATC throws holiday parties for our clients, homeless youth and young adults in San Francisco. For many of our clients, these will be the only holiday parties they are invited to and the only gifts they will get, so we want to make them awesome! When you are homeless and disconnected from your family, the holidays can be a very, very difficult time.
We expect 150-200 of our clients and their children to join us at our parties on December 17th and 19th. At these parties, they get a bunch of gifts (hats, gloves, movie tickets), including one special, personalized gift. This is often a gift card to their favorite store. They also get a hearty meal and delicious baked goodies. Most importantly, they get to spend time with people who care about them, the ATC staff. Our clients deeply appreciate these parties! The parties can be mellow, crazy, joyous, or usually some combination of the three.
Another 100 clients don't make it to the parties, but we make sure to give them a gift too.
Your gift will help ensure that our clients get to celebrate the holiday season; everyone deserves this!
I'm helping because
Our clients are awesome. They are some of the most creative, resilient, strong, appreciative people you will ever meet. They deserve all of the support they can get in their efforts to move beyond the streets and build outstanding lives. It is our privilege to be part of their lives.
