Christmas for Kin

In Alabama, over 200,000 children are being raised by a relative, mostly Grandparents. Nearly 60,000 Grandparents are raising their children’s children.

Why?

The number one reason are drugs, mainly opioids. Other reasons include incarceration, death, mental health or simply “I can’t do this” and the parents walk away.


Last year, our Grandparents as Parents committee with AFAPA helped 221 “Grandfamilies” with their Christmas thanks to a generous community donor. Unfortunately, we have  been notified that the donor won’t be able to help this year.

This crisis isn’t going away. Everyday, children are being dropped off for their Grandparents to raise them. Very few of these go through the state child welfare system for a variety of reasons, so these Grandparents are responsible for the care and upkeep of the children with zero help from anyone. The stats for Alabama should shock you…

for every one child in foster care, 88 children are being raised by their Grandparents with no help from any government agency.

That’s why we need your help. With our Grandparents, most live on just Social Security, which leaves them below poverty. Christmas presents are a luxury that is out of reach for most of the Grandparents.

We are hoping to provide Christmas for 300 children this year.

These children range from newborns to 18 years old. Adopt a family, gift cards, cash…follow your heart. These children deserve to have a wonderful Christmas morning. 


Sponsor a child!

Sponsor a child and help us reach 300 families this year! An average child’s list, including items they wish for as well as clothing is around $150. To reach 300 families, we need to raise $50,000!

$150.00
