Over the course of the year, we identify families in our church and community who could use assistance during the holidays. Then in November and December, we give them assistance either in check or gift card form so that they can do the shopping for their own families. We have found that works best for them as they are able to get exact colors, sizes, etc. Most of these families will be single parent or lower-income, working families. 100% of Crossroads Cares donations go into our giving account.
