We Adopted a Family! Christmas 2013


This is the beautiful family we helped last year. They loved all the gifts we were able to collect! And we raised enough to give the mom a really nice gift card to Target as well!

Once again this year the Charity Wings Art Center has adopted a family through the Boys’ and Girls’ Club of San Marcos.  And, we’re asking you to join us and help us to help them!  If you’re donating gifts, please make sure that they are wrapped and labeled with the name of the recipient.  The deadline for your donations to reach us is December 5th. 

Please bring or ship them to: 
Charity Wings Art Center, 287 Industrial Street, San Marcos, CA 92078

If you’d rather donate money that we can use towards gifts and gift cards for the family, please use the Paypal button below.

This is a family of four: mother, father, and two little girls, ages 8 and 5.  This year has been especially tough for them.  Finding work has been quite difficult for them and currently the father only works a few days a week.  The 8 year old is described as being smart, honest, and always putting others before herself.  She understands that her family is working as hard as they can to provide for her and she never complains about the things she doesn’t have. 

General needs for the family:  They don’t have a Christmas tree.  The 5 year is in need of a twin sized bed.  They need towels, pots and pans, an iron, an ironing board, a dryer, and a dresser.  Christmas gifts for the family must be new but they do accept gently used furniture and appliances that are needed.

Their Wish Lists:
Five year old girl – Her favorite color is black and her favorite movie is Dora the Explorer.  She wears size 10 shoes and size 5 in pants and shirts.  She needs new shoes and a winter jacket.  On her wish list:  Dora the Explorer dolls and a bicycle.
