Spread JOY this Holiday Season

snowflake smallThe Holiday Season is quickly approaching and Aviva invites you to join us in spreading holiday cheer to at-risk children and families!

Here’s How YOU Can Help…   


“ADOPT” A FOSTER CHILD  |  Ages: 0-15 years old

Light up the face of a foster child by providing them with that special toy they’re so looking forward to receiving! When you “Adopt” (i.e. sponsor) a foster child for the holidays, you’ll receive a personalized wish list with a child’s name, age, and holiday hopes and dreams. Have a blast shopping for a little one, knowing you’ll bring a huge smile to the face of a small foster child this holiday season. The approximate cost of sponsoring a foster child is $50-$65.

“ADOPT” A FAMILY | Ages: Youth – Adult

Many of Aviva’s families are struggling just to make ends meet; for them, it is difficult to provide even the basic necessities for their families, let alone holiday gifts. When you “Adopt” (i.e. sponsor) a family at Aviva for the holidays, you’ll receive a special wish list with the family’s story, information about the members of their household (i.e. what the children need, and what they would like), as well as a list of household necessities. Families typically ask for items such as food gift cards, pots and pans, utensils, towels, sheets and linens, blankets, microwaves, etc. The approximate cost of sponsoring a family ranges from $250-$350, depending on the size of the family and their needs. This is a great opportunity to do something fun and meaningful with your friends, family, co-workers, or at your place of worship!
