Holiday Giving Program Exceeds Past Records | Uplift Family Services

More than 3,300 gifts and gift cards were provided to clients in need throughout California in all regions over the holiday season. This represents the most support Uplift Family Services has ever provided to needy clients in the history of the Holiday Giving Program, and also represents an increase of 10.7% over last year.

In Santa Clara County, 1,592 individuals, which includes approximately 280 families, were supported with gifts, gift cards, essential clothing and household items. Thirty different corporate, organization and individual donors “adopted” these children and families by taking the wish lists provided by our staff and buying and wrapping these requests.
