Non-Perishable Holiday Food Kits:
Give the gift of a holiday meal! Donors create kits of non-perishable food items to help a family in need to prepare their own holiday feast. These kits will be distributed with turkeys donated by one of our nonprofit partners. List of suggested items will be provided. Grocery gift cards in $10-50 amounts are also welcome.
Holiday Store for Youth:
Empower youth to give back to their caregivers! We are collecting donations for a Holiday Store where youth in Haven House programs and their siblings will be able to pick out a gift for each of their caregivers. Donations should be new gift items for adult men and women in the $20-50 range. To promote a new, low-contact delivery method, please shop for your items using the provided Amazon Wish List. Items can be shipped directly to us at:
Haven House Holiday Store
c/o Wrenn House
908 West Morgan Street
Raleigh, NC 27603
Every family deserves a special holiday for their children. Individuals or groups can sponsor a Haven House family for the holidays. All families who participate in the Haven House Adopt-a-Family program are currently participating in or have just completed a program with Haven House. Sponsors will receive a wish list, along with gender and age, for each child or youth they are sponsoring. We encourage sponsors to plan on a budget of $100 maximum per child/youth for their wish list.
Gift Card Donations:
Gift cards are one of the most frequently requested items on the youth wish lists. We also use gift cards to support families who are enrolled in a Haven House program in late December. Gift cards can be in $5-50 denominations for fast-food restaurants, big box-stores such as Target or Walmart, and grocery stores.
Basic Needs Donations:
Families often request necessities such as socks, underwear, winter coats, and winter accessories (hats, gloves, etc). Socks and underwear must be new. Coats and winter accessories can be new or gently-used.
