You Can Help families in Need Christmas 2015
Christmas is coming and families in need are reaching out for Christmas help. You can find a family below that needs you.
I’ve been receiving help requests from families in need in response to various posts on NanaFinds.com. Instead of having them scattered and difficult to be noticed, I’ll be adding them to this post as I receive them. If you find a family you might be interested in helping, please leave a comment below. It will not be public for others to see. All comments remain private unless I approve them. There may be families from Christmas 2014 who may still need help. Please take time to read and consider these simple requests for helping children have a Christmas. You may be their only hope.
I am not a charity and cannot personally help others. I try to help by attempting to connect families in need with “angels” who wish to help. There should be no guarantees or obligations assumed. Once I am given permission by the parties involved to share email addresses and do so, I am no longer involved.

Families in need of help have kids in need of birthday help. Their children need joy not only at Christmas time but on their birthdays, too. Do you remember how you felt when your birthday was approaching? For families in need, not only is Christmas very stressful because they are unable to help Santa, but their children’s birthdays are stressful too. Parents never want to let their children down. If parents can’t afford the birthday gifts their children so desperately want or need, it is heartbreaking for both parents and kids in need. Do you know that there are children who have never had a birthday party? How sad is that!
Kids in Need Birthday Gifts
As we all know, children tend to grow out of their clothes and shoes way too soon and it is difficult to provide what they need when they need it. When children feel like they fit in they feel more comfortable in school. This makes it easier for them to concentrate on their lessons instead of being self-conscious of their appearance. That can be very distracting for children, especially as they enter the ‘tween and beyond stage.
Toys aren’t just for fun. They help children develop skills in so many ways. Toys can help children develop motor skills, cognitive skills, and social skills. When chosen for the appropriate age level, toys can be fun and educational without the frustration that the wrong developmental level can bring on.
Requests for Kids in Need Birthday Help
What I am asking is that if you would like to help kids in need have a happy birthday, look over the following requests for help that I received for 2012 Christmas help. Unfortunately, their situation won’t change because just Christmas has come and gone. They will have these concerns throughout the year unless they finally find employment, their health turns for the best, the children’s father pays child support, or they receive some assistance from people with big hearts such as you. Before you decide, please take time to read through the list below, organized by state. If you wish to learn more about a family, leave a comment below and I will respond to you. I am not a charity, but I will attempt to make a match for each offer to help kids in need of birthday help and then it is up to you and the family in need to make a connection. This can be a great family acts of kindness to involve your own children in, giving gifts to others kids. Here is a website of how kids help kids in need.
In the meantime, I will be contacting the families listed below for their kids in need birthdays and first names. If I don’t receive a response in a reasonable time, I will delete them. Here is a similar post: Families in need One Birthday Gift for My Child.

ADOPT A FAMILY CHRISTMAS HELP PROGRAMS
Time is moving forward towards Christmas Adopt A Family deadlines set by charitable 501(c)(3) organizations such as the sampling below. By adopting a family in need through a non-profit charitable ogranization, you can safely donate and be confident you will make a family’s Christmas much merrier than it would be without your generosity.
Adopting a family in need teaches children the spirit of Christmas and helps them focus on the needs of others, rather than just what they will be finding under their tree. Donations are also accepted from groups wishing to pool together their funds. Average wish list donations are approximately $50 per person.
Be sure to check each Adopt A Family program’s deadline for donating gifts. Volunteers need time to collect, organize, and deliver the gifts to their local families in need. If it appears you might have missed their deadline, contact them – they may have some wish lists unfilled. The deadline for giving is always later than the deadline for applying to the Adopt A Family programs. Remember to bookmark their sight for next year’s gift giving.
NATIONAL ADOPT A FAMILY PROGRAMS
Salvation Army Adopt A Family Program
The Adopt A Family (AAF) program matches impoverished families with individual or group sponsors to provide for their tangible needs at Christmas. Without the benefit of an adoption, these families would be looking forward to a very grim holiday. Being adopted is designed to be a once or, on very rare occasions, twice in a lifetime event for recipient families.
For more information, visit the Salvation Army’s Adopt-a-Family website.
CALIFORNIA ADOPT A FAMILY PROGRAMS
VOLUNTEER CENTER OF SACRAMENTO
The Volunteer Center of Sacramento’s Adopt A Family Program provides food and gifts for local, low-income families during the holiday season. Without this program, these families may go without Christmas dinner and gifts for their children to open on Christmas morning.
