Give from the Heart: APAH’s holiday gift drive

Gift giving, especially during the holiday season, is a universal way of showing love, connecting with others, and sharing traditions.

For families challenged to make ends meet, giving gifts is often not an option, even during the holidays. We are collecting toys and gifts for children ages newborn-18 who call an APAH community home.

These gifts will make up a holiday gift shop where parents can choose a gift for each of their children. Your donation will ensure that all children receive a gift during the holiday season.

How can I participate?

    • Give individually
    • Hold a mini gift-drive
    • Encourage your company to collect for APAH (company flyer)
    • Encourage your church to collect for APAH (church flyer)
    • Encourage your neighbors to give (individual flyer)
    • Encourage your scout troop to collect for APAH (troop flyer)

Commit to donating gifts today by contacting Julie Booth, our Volunteer Program Manager, at or by submitting a completed Gift Commitment Form.
