There are many gift programs across the metro area that help families in need experience joy during the holiday season. Since 1971, 360 Communities Armful of Love has drawn amazing and dedicated volunteers as well as generous family sponsors who ensure families can have gifts and meals during the holidays. If you have never experienced Armful of Love, you may wonder how this program continues to thrive. It has become a tradition for our sponsors and volunteers, and an important avenue for bringing the community together. Starting in mid-October, thousands of people sign up for the program to either give or receive, and it becomes clear why Armful of Love is so powerful.
