Due to COVID-19, we changed Armful of Love in 2020 by collecting and providing gift cards to families in our community. With the help of our generous sponsors, 712 families were able to purchase holiday gifts using the donated gift cards. After the holiday season, we surveyed both clients and sponsors to understand their feelings and thoughts about the changes made in 2020 and to inform the program’s future.
We received clear feedback from clients that gift cards are their preferred choice. Comments stated that it was easier for their family and gave parents a more meaningful experience through the opportunity to select and purchase their children’s gifts themselves. In 2021, we will continue to collect gift cards for families. If you would like donate gift cards, please fill out our form below! Thank you!
