Spread joy! Wellspring's Giving Together drive helps families in crisis celebrate the season

OCTOBER 30, 2015: Spread joy this giving season and help children and families experiencing homelessness celebrate a warm, safe and memorable holiday.

Wellspring Family Services is launching its annual Giving Together donation drive on Monday, November 2, 2015. Each holiday season hundreds of community members donate new toys, books, winter clothes, gift cards or money to help stock the Baby Boutique and Holiday Toy Room. Families are then invited to select gift items for their children.

NEW THIS YEAR: As part of the Giving Together drive, Wellspring will also be participating in Giving Tuesday, December 1, a global day to give back via social media. Proceeds from this one-day, online donation drive will benefit Wellspring’s Early Learning Center and the work underway to build strong supports around young children who have experienced the trauma of homelessness. Wellspring will be participating on Twitter and Facebook.

Wellspring’s annual holiday donation drive typically benefits about a thousand children and families each year. Drop-off donations will be taken between November 2, 2015, and January 1, 2016.
