Holiday Families Program
-- Contributions needed by 12/15! --
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 a gift, gift card, or money to the ZNA Holiday Families Program. 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.
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, Barbara Cossie, 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.
The Zilker Elves
Perhaps you don't have time to shop. That's okay--our Zilker elves can do the shopping for you! Contributions to the fund can be made securely online using PayPal or a credit card/debit card by clicking the donate button below, or by mailing this donation form with your check. Every dollar we receive will be spent on our families in need.
Between December 1 and December 15, we will accept new and unwrapped donations from our "Wish List." Our "Wish List" will be posted here soon.
