Back to Ways to Give

Give in Kind


As the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to ripple through our communities and into our holiday season, we hope to have your support for our Holiday Wishes program. Many of our clients and their families have been hit hard by the pandemic and the associated economic ramifications – and holiday gifts will put an additional strain on the family budget. Side by Side endeavors to brighten our young people’s holiday season by ensuring that each has a present to unwrap.  

Want to make a holiday wish come true? The following businesses have generously offered to showcase our clients’ holiday wish lists – stop in during the indicated time frames to pick up a tag and fulfill one or more wishes!  

 *Please return the gifts by 12/13 to ensure that we can get them to our clients in time.
