2020 Holiday Helper Program
 
The Holiday Helper program is kicking off!  The Holiday Helper program assists families in need within Lyon and Pleasant Ridge by providing children outerwear, holiday gifts and food.  We are now seeking sponsors!   Sponsors provide outerwear (coats, snow pants, boots, hats and gloves) in early November, as well as books and gifts in early December to families.   

Sponsors can offer to help one child or a family with two or more children.  Other ways to help include providing grocery gift cards or cash donations.

Please feel free to email us or simply click on the sign up genius below to sign up to sponsor a family or donate a gift card.
