The Arc SF Holiday Gift Cards for Clients Drive
Help The Arc fulfill the wishes of our many clients by purchasing a "Season of Promise" Gift Card for groceries, a warm blanket or clothes for work.
Your gift of $25 or more will purchase a gift card to Walgreens, Safeway, Target or Ross and will be given to a client who might not otherwise receive a gift this holiday season. We run this campaign because many of our 800 clients with developmental disabiliteis are alone with no family during the holidays. Their low income and isolation makes it difficult to enjoy the spirit of the season without a community that cares.
Here's how to participate:
Holiday Gift Cards are in $25 increments. However, most clients need multiple gift cards (for groceries, clothes and personal care items).
You can choose to:
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate how many of which Gift Cards you/your office would like to purchase ($25 ea.: Safeway, Ross, Target and/or Walgreens), with the amount you wish to raise, or the amount of your one-time cash donation in support of the general Wish List effort.
- Ask us to create your Company Campaign Fundraising Page in which you can choose to:
- a) Indicate a number of client wishes you wish to fill (up to 150 clients in need)
- b) Indicate the total fundraising goal for your office (Ex. $50 x 40 donations from staff = $2,000)
In the last four years generous companies have “adopted” a group of Arc clients, like our seniors program. We provide brief biographies of each client and then their stories are circulated among employees, inviting them to participate in The Arc’s Holiday Gift Card Drive. More than $75,000 has been raised by generous corporate donors and individual supporters to directly support our clients through the Holiday Gift Card Drive over the last five years.
We'll be launching this year's Corporate Holiday Gift Card Drive on #Giving Tuesday, November 29th. But you can jumpstart your company's campaign now--we're ready to help.
