Volunteers will collect and wrap the gifts for different families in the area. KINDH volunteers also deliver the gifts to the families throughout the county. Each family will also receive a gift card from Giant or Safeway for their holiday meal.
Gift Cards and check/cash are also welcome if you do not have time to shop. Please make your check donation out to KINDH. You can also make a donation online at WWW.KINDH.ORG. KINDH is a 501c with the mission of helping needy children in the area.
