Because of your donations to Wimberley Good Neighbor and direct help from Wimberley community members who adopted families, 15 families who live at or near the federal poverty limit have gifts and needs for their children this holiday! Twenty-five families applied to the program, and 15 families qualified this year. The families you helped are thankful beyond words, and you can find many of their thank you notes on this page. H-E-B donated gift cards for a Christmas meal to the first ten families, and Start-Up Kids Club donated 13 boys and girls bikes.
For more information or questions about further help, please call or text us at 512-648-4400.
Thank you for helping to spread the joy of the season to our neighbors!
This year the cost of living has affected everyone, but is especially stressful for many families who are at the poverty line or barely above it. The Adopt-A-Family program lets families be anonymous and create their own shopping list of the exact toys and necessities their children wish for. We asked each family to create a list of 3 toys/entertainment and 3 needs per child, but they are grateful to have one gift for the holiday. Getting toys and clothing that are popular helps kids feel less like outsiders and that they fit in with their peers.
