Holiday Best Gift Ever Drive

Holiday Best Gift Ever Drive
This year we know that joy is more important than ever for the youth we serve. The pandemic has devastated many businesses and many families have endured severe financial hardships. In an effort to provide some cheer during this holiday season, PAL is continuing with our Best Gift Ever Drive however, it has transitioned to a virtual format. Whether you’re an individual, a company or a group, we would love for you to participate in making holiday wishes come true.

It would be difficult to accept actual toys/gifts at this time, therefore we have made the change to provide PAL youth with a $30 gift card to various requested local retailers. The Best Gift Ever Drive launches on Tuesday, November 10th and ends on Thursday December 10th. If you are interested and willing to support this drive, there are a couple of ways you can donate—you may choose to make a general donation to the Best Gift Ever Drive or you can sponsor a specific child (or two, or three...) by clicking one of the links below. 

Unfortunately, PAL will not host the annual Holiday Workshop with Santa and will need to disburse gifts before the winter break by appointment on Thursday, December 17th. Our deadline to receive all gift cards will be Monday, December 14th. If you have any questions, please contact the PAL Office.

Thank you for joining this effort this year and bringing much needed cheer at this time!
