Volunteers of America in Action

Caring Gift angels are here!

In one place, you can take care of your Christmas shopping and provide valuable help to Volunteers of America.

Each year, your Caring Gifts donations for these beautiful ornaments provide shelter to homeless veterans, ensure children stay in school and allow senior citizens to remain in their own homes. Here is one young man you have helped:

As a child, Derrick carefully watched the older kids at the LightHouse, hoping to be like them. He was raised by his grandmother while his mother struggled with drugs, spending time in and out of jail during his early years. Derrick could have fallen into the same destructive behavior, but the LightHouse helped him see a different way. Every day he went to the LightHouse to do his homework and receive encouragement from the staff. Now 17, he is an honor roll student, just like those he admired. Only football practice interrupts Derrick’s attendance, and he always has a hug for the LightHouse staff. He is also giving back, helping the younger kids and answering whatever questions they have about how to be like him.

Derrick found a path to success, but many other children as well as veterans, seniors and people with disabilities are on waiting lists. Through Caring Gifts, your generosity provides opportunities for more children like Derrick to escape poverty and discover independence.

Please make your generous gift today, and we will send a beautiful Caring Gifts angel ornament to all those on your list. Each ornament is hand wrapped and decorated for the holidays. Fill out the online form and we will start sending your angels!

Every gift to Volunteers of America is important no matter how large or small.  Thank you for your support of our special work, and have a blessed holiday season.
