As the holiday season approaches, we are reminded of how grateful we are for the support we receive from our community, and those less fortunate who benefit from your generosity. Will you join us in helping Villa families in need this season?

You can spread holiday cheer by participating in our 2019 Season of Hope. Here’s how you can help:

Sponsor a child, teen or adult

Each Villa client submits a wish list specifying clothing needs, outerwear requirements, and an individualized “special” wish. Consider being a sponsor and help St. Joseph’s Villa provide warm clothing and gifts for these clients who otherwise might not receive anything during the holiday season.

Volunteer your time

Organize gift donations and prepare for distribution.

Coordinate a collection drive

We are in need of new toys and games, arts and crafts, children’s books, coats and boots, non-perishable foods, household items or toiletries. Consider getting together with family, friends, or co-workers to coordinate a collection drive for any of the following:

Make a financial contribution

A financial contribution to our the Season of Hope program is another way you can brighten the holidays for our children and families. Please make contributions payable to St. Joseph’s Villa and note in the memo, c/o Kathy Perun, Season of Hope.
