Eight-year-old Eli is hoping for a Sonic the Hedgehog gift. One of our youngest residents, Eli left a home of violence for one of our group homes. Eli is small, speedy and a spitfire, and no doubt drawn to the animated character for its lightningfast speed, daredevilish tendencies and need to keep the peace.
Thank you to all who participated in this year’s Big Wishes Gift Card Drive! Your gift and philanthropic support will help fulfill the holiday dreams of children at The Home.
Our program directors now have the wonderful task of using your donations to purchase the items our kids and families have identified as their special, essential wish. Thanks to you, many children who wouldn’t have had anything to unwrap will now experience the joy of receiving a gift that they asked for this year.
Thank you to our partners Citizens Bank, The TJX Companies and Bernie & Phyl’s Furniture for generously matching up to $10,000 in gift card donations this year!
You can make a monetary gift online at thehome.org/donatebigwishes. Your gift helps bring joy to our kids and vulnerable families during the holidays and all year round!
We’ve talked to the kids and identified a few stores on our Amazon Wish List where we know we can fill their wish. Visit our Amazon Wish List and in just a few clicks you can purchase and send a gift card to a specific store directly to The Home for Little Wanderers!
Ask your friends, family, and neighbors to donate to your fundraising page. The donations collected will help create positive holiday memories! To create a fundraiser, visit www.justgiving.com/bigwishes2022 and start fundraising.
Our kids and families need gift cards for T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, Target, Star Market, Market Basket, Stop & Shop, Walmart, Amazon, VISA, Uber and more.
If you are sending your gift cards through the mail, please be sure to indicate the gift card amount on all gift cards. If you are purchasing gift cards online, it would be helpful to include the gift card receipt. Please send all gift cards by December 12, 2022, to ensure we can fill our kids’ wishes in time for the holidays.
