Every year, hundreds of children in Napa and Solano counties are completely forgotten during the holidays. Toy drives provide the right gifts for kids under 12, but do not always meet the needs of older kids and teens in our community.
You can help make sure that this year ALL children and their families receive what they need by supporting Aldea's Holiday Gift Card Round Up!
What Can I Give?
We are accepting the following gifts:
Aldea has been able to support our clients and families through the generous donations of our donors and supporters. Your gift will be applied where it is needed most, whether purchasing a holiday meal for a family or helping a parent buy gifts for children.
$25 Gift Cards for parents to purchase gifts for their children
A great source of pride for many parents is to shop for their children’s holiday gifts. This is not a holiday reality for some families living paycheck to paycheck. Help our parents make this holiday season special with a gift card to a local retailer ($25 increments preferred).
Adopt a Family
If you are interested in adopting a family, we are collecting gift cards totaling $300 that will be given to each family in need. A mix of gift cards to various stores is ideal for covering several family needs.
What Gift Cards Should I Get?
Target and Walmart are great choices. Other suggestions are Cinemark, Visa, Safeway, Raley’s, Lucky’s,
