In our community, there is a growing number of vulnerable youth and families in crisis. Through our annual Difference Maker campaign, YOU can be a part of the solution.

We know that needs escalate during the Holidays so each year from
November 1st - December 10th, we provide easy ways to meet tangible needs in our community from Christmas gifts to funds for meals.

Join us in supporting vulnerable youth, children and teens in foster care, single parents, refugee families and caregivers around the Greater Sacramento Area.

There is something each of us can do to 
MAKE A DIFFERENCE this Holiday Season!

Christmas Gifts.png

Make Christmas special for local kids in the foster system or refugee/at-risk families. Shop our Amazon wishlist or purchase & deliver new, unwrapped gifts to the Alliance Office.

Holiday Meals.png

Bring relief to those in need by providing a Holiday meal. We will be accepting $50 & $100 gift cards to local grocery stores which will be distributed to aged out youth, caregivers, and families in crisis. 

Caregiver Gift Baskets.png

Encourage a local foster parent or caregiver by putting together a themed

Holiday gift basket.

This is a great way to support those caring for kids on a daily basis. 

Year-End Giving.png

Provide additional resources for local kids and families throughout the year by making a donation to The Alliance.

Gifts received between Nov. 1-Dec. 31 will be matched dollar-for-dollar thanks to some of our generous donors.
