MEND Christmas Program 2018



Join us in giving a merry holiday season to families, seniors and individuals experiencing homelessness in the Northeast San Fernando Valley. This Christmas, MEND will partner with corporations, businesses, families & individuals like you to provide food and gifts for those in need.

Get involved in the following ways:

  • Adopt a Family- MEND will match you and your group with a family. Your group is asked to provide a sweatshirt or sweater for each family member, buy one new clothing item and one or two new toys for each child & buy a small gift or household item such as a space heater, dishes, or blankets for the parents. Your gift basket should also include enough food for one complete Christmas meal for the entire family. Your group will also arrange to deliver the gifts and food to the family.

Thanks to your generosity we have met capacity for this year’s adoption opportunities. See below for more ways to get involved.

  • Organize a food, toy or blanket drive One of the most effective ways you can participate in MEND’s Christmas program is to organize a drive of your own. Whether you’re hosting a holiday event and asking guests to bring a toy or collecting canned food with your school. We want to work with you. Register your drive and receive more info on the types of items we need.
