Holidays are more than just a big meal and some gifts, it’s creating memories. Memories that will affect children for the rest of their lives; most of us have a memory of that “special” gift they received or the best dinner– these children deserve to have a special memory after the tragedies they have survived.
During the Holiday Season, GRG of Brevard helps hundreds of relative care families when sponsors become “Santa” for families in need. The families we serve are in dire need of help and would not otherwise have assistance. The families involved with our Christmas programs are touched with a giving spirit and toys that will bring those special memories that every child deserves. The majority of our relative care families are headed by single grandmothers raising their children alone and who are struggling to afford the most basic of necessities. Christmas presents are a luxury completely out of their reach. It is our goal during the Holiday Season to provide for each family we serve with wonderful, quality gifts and meals.
We rely entirely on your generosity and donations of the Community to do this. GRG of Brevard is looking for partners to be “Santa” to help provide holiday memories for close to 500 local children who are in living in relative care. By providing supportive services to relative care families, we help to ensure that the children stay safe with their extended family and do not enter non-relative foster care. Season’s Greetings! We invite YOU to consider a sponsorship for our 2016 Children’s Christmas Celebration. It is essential that the community supports GRG of Brevard. Children of abuse and neglect must know they always have ‘a shelter from the storm.
