Share Your Love Program – Holiday Family Adoption

 Share Your Love

Program

(Holiday Adoption Program)

Leaps of Love has a different approach to helping families during the Holiday Season.  For the past 8 years, we have concentrated on what we can do to help these families with provision that help strengthen the family unit and experience togetherness that is sometimes strained in their situations.

Some of our thoughts include having a family portrait taken, sending the family to dinner and a movie; purchasing theatre tickets, providing sporting event tickets, special event tickets; gift certificates to restaurants, Dave & Buster’s, Chuck E Cheese, The Incredible Pizza Co.  These are just a few ideas that will give the family a chance to be together as a family to enjoy various traditional family activities during the Holidays that they don’t otherwise get to enjoy.  These special times together will only bring the family closer!

We are also open to helping the families with other needs that may arise, such as helping with gifts, clothing and food but our main focus is to help provide experiences and activities the whole family can enjoy together.

If you would like to participate in our ‘Share Your Love’ Program, please contact us info@leapsoflove.org or Traci (618) 410-7212
