The Love Waterford Gifting Program connects families in need in our community with families who are willing to help meet spread joy to their neighbors for Christmas.
Families are referred to our Gifting Program through trusted partners - Waterford Unified School District, Sierra Vista Family Resource Center, and Waterford Police Services.
We get a list of items that children and their families need, as well as toys that they want, and put that information onto a "Tag."
A tree with the tags is put into the Waterford USD office, and community members sponsor a child(ren) for Christmas by purchasing items from their list.
Presents are returned to the Waterford USD office, where our volunteers pick them up, wrap them, and store them until it's time for delivery.
In addition to the gifts that were donated by the community, ACE donated
for the Waterford Sheriff to distribute, and the Letters to Santa Charity and CBC church donated
$2,500 in GIFT CARDS
to be distributed amongst another 12 families in our community
Thanks for LOVING our kids this Christmas!
