Fundraising Progress

Raised $10,700.00 Target $10,000.00

Join Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles as we celebrate the season of giving.

Imagine a holiday season without being able to purchase gifts for your children or have a special meal with your family. This is often the case for families who are economically challenged, such as our Partner Families.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles’ (HFH GLA) Adopt-A-Family Holiday Program supports Habitat partner families who may be preparing to move into their new home or are have a financial hardship. With your generosity, we hope to bring holiday blessings to as many as 40 families.

This year’s participating partner families consist of over 100 children, senior citizens, disabled, veteran and military families. Through our efforts, we can assist hard working; low-income families have an enjoyable holiday season.

Each partner family will receive a holiday basket filled with donations and gift cards to allow them to choose how to celebrate the holiday season. Gifts will be distributed during HFH GLA’s Adopt-a-Family Holiday Celebration Event, to be held in December before the holidays.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Adopt a Family: Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles will assemble a gift basket for each family valued at $250. You can adopt one or more families, or you can fundraise with friends. Donations less than $250 will be pooled together to sponsor an entire family. Help us make sure that all 40 families experience a magical and memorable holiday season. We thank you in advance for your support!
