13th Annual Giving Tree is at Shoes & Such

If you are looking for a way to help support families around the holidays we have a Giving Tree at Shoes & Such. Our children, youth and adults shared their needs with us and we made tags that are on the Giving Tree. So, stop by take a tag and drop it back off at Shoes & Such and make someone else’s Christmas a little brighter. For questions please call Heather Marcy or email her at hmarcy@northlandfamily.org

Adopt-A-Family 2018

As Northland Family Help Center begins to prepare for our 40th holiday season, we are also preparing for our 3rdannual Adopt-A-Family program.

 

Many of our clients experience financial burdens after crime victimization especially those that have experienced Domestic Violence. Our clients typically have one or more jobs, are single parents, have recently experienced a divorce or trauma, and/or live on fixed incomes. Our clients are generous and caring and it is so hard for them to ask for this kind of help. Every year we see first-hand how economic barriers can lead some of our clients into depression during the holiday season because they can’t give their children the Christmas presents they have asked for. But, with your help we can change that!

If you are interested in Adopting a Family as a business or individually please contact: Heather Marcy, NFHC Associate Director at 928-233-4306 or by email hmarcy@northlandfamily.org

 

From there Heather will send you family stories and wish lists for this holiday season and you can pick the family or individual whose needs speak to your heart. Thank you and Happy Holidays!

Donation Drive for NFHC’s Youth Shelter

This year the Coconino Coalition for Children & Youth is collecting gift cards for our annual Homeless and Runaway Youth Drive

Why gift cards? Last year, a young 16 year old girl faced the passing of her mother after endearing a difficult illness.  Her school had received gift cards from the 2016 CCC&Y drive, and she was offered assistance.  She was so excited to have money to purchase clothing and food for her and her cousins from Walmart. She cried and told school staff that no one had ever asked her what she needed in her entire 16 years on this earth.

            All proceeds will be used in Coconino County to obtain gift cards that will benefit the local youth shelter/outreach program at Northland Family Help Center and various school districts’ McKinney–Vento homeless youth programs where cards will be used for homeless and runaway youth facing tremendous challenges.

Use this link to donate electronically or gift card, cash and check donations can be given/mailed at the below address.

Stop by Shoes & Such to support NFHC’s 2nd Annual School Supply Drive July 7-31st!

Many children at the shelter need your help purchasing their school supplies. Come down and take a leaf with a few school supplies that you can purchase. Buy the supplies and return them to Shoes & Such by July 31st. It’s just like the Giving Tree around Christmas, but this Giving Tree is to support the children’s’ education. As the supplies get returned the leaves will be displayed to show the community that together we can support the children in starting their school year off right! Thank you!
