How to Adopt an HMHI Family for Christmas

HMHI family at Christmas

Christmas, a time of giving, is a great time to assist a family experiencing homelessness, and HMHI is pleased to connect you with a family in need. You can provide gifts for a single-parent family or for an individual in our program.

An “Old Fashioned Christmas”

Our theme is “Old Fashioned Christmas,” from the Victorian suggestion that appropriate gifts consist of:

  • Something that you want,
  • Something that you need,
  • Something that you’ll wear,
  • Something that you’ll read.

Each of our participants select four wishes in keeping with this list.

How You Can Help

Contact us if you’d like to choose gifts to make our participants’ wishes come true.

Then drop off the new, unwrapped gifts (or gift cards) at our office no later than December 15. For more information, phone us at 563/326-1330, ext. 105.

  1. I am looking for an opportunity to help out this Christmas – however, I will not be home (from uni overseas) until the 15th. Would it be possible to drop off after the 15th or help out on Christmas Eve?

    • Thanks for your offer. We’ll send it to our volunteer coordinator. If all is completed by then, perhaps there’s other work you could do. Really appreciate your contacting us and have a safe flight home!
