Seasonal Programs

Gifts From The Heart

Our Gifts From The Heart program "adopts" children for Christmas. These kids are referred by teachers from area schools. Applications are sent home to parents to fill in the child's clothing and shoe sizes and a few "wish list items". Members from the community then adopt a child and shop for that child's patricular sizes and needs. Clothing is a priority, then the wants. When the shopping is done, the gifts are delilvered to FGFRC to be given to the parents. The parents can then wrap the gifts for their children. The stress of not having Christmas gifts for their children is relieved. This makes the Christmas season merry for all!

This program is wholly dependent on the community for its success. We do not have funds for this program. All donations are tax deductible.

Gifts From The Heart Christmas program was a tremendous success thanks to our community. FGFRC found sponsors for 410 children this year. We would like to express our deep appreciation to everyone that made this program a success.
