1) What is the deadline for donations?
Our deadline is Dec 4th for registered families. Any donations after Dec 4th will be allocated to families with emergency needs.
2) Will I be sponsoring a specific family this year?
The heart and soul of Sponsor A Family MN has been the direct connection between the sponsor and their family. Unfortunately, sponsoring a specific family will not be possible this year as all gift cards will be pooled and then allocated to our programs.
3) How do I know my gift cards are going to those in need?
We have years of experience with every program and case manager; they will continue to use our standard vetting process to select appropriate families in need.
4) How will families get their gift cards?
Every partner program has submitted a plan to ensure gifts cards will be distributed only to the responsible adult in each family. The gift cards will be given along with a letter acknowledging that the gift cards came from a sponsor who cared about them. Each family will write a thank you card, but, unfortunately, we will not be able to match the cards to specific sponsors.
Thank you to those that provide operational support!
