Description

Holiday Stockings and Gifts for Foster Youth

Local residents can ensure foster youth have stockings and presents to open this holiday season, thanks to United Way’s Women in Philanthropy and Sacramento County’s Gifts From The Heart program. Visit www.yourlocalunitedway.org to sign up to bring specific gifts for children in Sacramento County’s Child Protective Services. Local residents also can provide a $30 donation to purchase a holiday stocking for a foster youth preparing for emancipation. All items must be received by 4 p.m. on Dec. 3 at United Way’s office, 10389 Old Placerville Road, Sacramento. For more information, contact Leslie Ortiz at lortiz@uwccr.org or (916) 856-3977.

United Way’s Women in Philanthropy brings women together to foster the future, preparing foster youth for a successful adulthood. A dynamic group of businesswomen, homemakers and community leaders, Women in Philanthropy members raise funds, hold drives and provide trainings focused on helping foster youth rise to their dreams. The group also is a partner in United Way’s $en$e-Ability project, helping foster youth become financially self-sufficient through financial literacy courses and individual development accounts that provide a matched savings program. For more information, visit www.yourlocalunitedway.org/wip.

Sacramento County’s Gifts from the Heart is an annual holiday gift-giving program that operates on donations and benefits children and seniors who are in the Department of Health and Human Services’ system of care. For more information, call (916) 875-2027.
