VAC’s 38th Annual Holiday program is in full swing. We are currently seeking sponsors for all the families signed up to participate. The families range from single parents with children to an individual with a disability or a senior 65 years and older. We have an individual or family perfect for any amount of sponsorship.

Last year’s collection/distribution was very successful with the changes we made due to COVID. Some of those changes remain in place for the 2021 program. Here are some suggestions for those who have employees working remotely or do not feel comfortable purchasing gifts.

VAC recommends $50 to $75 for gifts for eligible individuals in the family. We also ask for $20 per person for food so they can have a nice meal.

1. Purchase the gifts, gift cards and deliver them to our Holiday Distribution Center.

2. Deliver a monetary donation or gift card for food.
