Holiday Families Program
-- Contributions needed by December 15! --
For many years, the Zilker Neighborhood Association has sponsored families in need from Zilker Elementary School for the holidays. Again, this year the ZNA is sponsoring eight families, each nominated by the elementary school counselor. If you feel you and your family have been blessed, please think about paying your blessings forward by donating to the ZNA Holiday Families Program. We are in need of the following:
(1) monetary donations and/or
(2) donations of $25 gift cards from CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Target, or other nearby retailers
Please note that donations are not deductible for federal income tax purposes as charitable contributions because, although we are a nonprofit, we are not organized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
Donations may be mailed or delivered along with this donation form to 1608 Treadwell Street, Austin, TX 78704. Monetary contributions to the fund can also be made securely online using PayPal or a credit card/debit card by clicking the donate button below. Every dollar we receive will be spent on our families in need.
Every year a couple of dozen kids wake up to a brighter Christmas morning, thanks to the dedication and generosity of our Zilker neighbors. ZNA's Holiday Family Program is a resounding success! Each year our team of Zilker Elves organizes donations, shopping, wrapping, and delivery for several families at Zilker Elementary who could use help during the holiday season. Our program coordinator, Harmony Grogan, pulls together a fantastic effort to get everything under the tree early on Christmas week. Most of all, thank you to the numerous neighbors who volunteer, donate, inquire, shop, drop off, and otherwise help make this possible.
If you have any questions or would like to volunteer as a Zilker Elf, contact Harmony at firstname.lastname@example.org.
