Two Programs Help P2P Clients and Their Families Have a Happy Holiday
This program has been coordinated by Person-to-Person for more than 40 years and provides a full day of food at the holidays for approximately 800 seniors or families. Local churches display paper doves representing a family or individual in need. Congregants then choose a dove, shop for the groceries listed and wrap them all up in large Christmas boxes. Twenty churches in the surrounding area participate.
A Holiday “store” is set up for clients who have visited P2P at least six times during the year. New age-appropriate toys and books are displayed so clients can “shop” for a free gift and book for their child plus a board game for the family.
