Dear WE LIFT LA supporters,
For most people the smell of turkey and pumpkin pie signals Thanksgiving and time with family. We know that Christmas is near. There’s no wonder we call this “the most wonderful time of the year”!
At WE LIFT LA we wish that could be the case for everyone……. especially former foster youth.
With the holidays approaching and the season of gift giving upon us, we realize that some people aren’t as fortunate. There are many kids and young adults who have spent a majority of their lives in foster care and have no family to go to for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
The holidays in particular can be very difficult for these youth as it often is a painful reminder of what they’ve gone through. That’s where WE LIFT LA comes in…….
During this holiday season we’re asking for your support and donations. Your gift will impact these former foster youths by directly supporting their Holiday experiences with our WE LIFT LA family.
Help us sponsor an individual gift for one of our many clients, a group outing, or a special dinner during the holidays. We are asking you for gift cards ($ 50- 75), to sponsor a holiday dinner for our young men or women ($ 100- 150), to help us purchase Christmas trees and decorations ($ 200), or a special outing like a concert for the young women’s house ($ 250 – 500).
You can donate directly online at http://weliftla.org/donate/or send gift cards to the address below.
We’d like to leave you with words from Christina, one of our young women who utilized WE LIFT LA for Supportive Housing and has since graduated from Cal State Northridge.
“For me and my journey, I’ve learned that family is what you make of it. The support I received from Joyce and Tony these last few years has really impacted how I view people and other things in this world. Their continued guidance and love helped me through some difficult times and I am forever grateful for their support. I plan to stay involved and help them mentor new youth coming into the program.”
Happy Holidays to you and yours and warmest wishes for your continued support. We appreciate YOU!
