Adopt-A-Family with Kula

gift boxes over white background 3d illustrationWe are excited to announce that we are participating in the YWCA’s Adopt-A-Family program. We have “adopted” two families this year, and will be sponsoring them this holiday season by purchasing gifts and gift cards for the children, and providing gift cards to help cover the cost of their holiday meals.

We would love your help in supporting these families!

If you’d like to participate, please stop by the Kula front desk, where you’ll receive a card with the name of the person you’ll be shopping for, along with an item from his/her wish list. Simply purchase the item and return it to Kula (be sure to save your receipt to turn in too!).

Gifts should be returned festively wrapped (gift boxes are strongly encouraged over gift bags). Securely affix a label to your package with the recipient’s name,  You can place your wrapped gift under the tree at Kula, and return your gift receipt to the front desk. If you purchased a gift card, please return it in an unsealed envelope with the recipient’s name written on it. We invite you to include a cheery (unsigned) greeting card as well, for a warm and personal touch. Please do NOT put gift cards inside wrapped gifts.

All gifts and gift cards must be returned to Kula no later than Friday, December 12th.

Please note, this year the YWCA is putting slightly more emphasis on gift cards. Each child will receive at least one gift card along with his/her other gifts. While gift cards are not always as much fun to shop for, please know that they play an important role in our families’ holiday. Providing a gift card allows the parent to go shopping and select a gift personally for her own children – something she may not be able to do otherwise. In that way, a gift card you provide to a child is also a precious gift to his/her mother.

We thank you in advance for coming together with us as a community in order to help and support our local families in need. Your generosity is truly appreciated.
