Hope for the Holidays

Be a part of A Wider Circle’s Holiday Giving Programs

For children and adults living in poverty, the holidays are often a time of anxiety and disappointment.  Many parents are simply unable to provide their children with the type of celebration that so many of us take for granted.  A Wider Circle seeks to make the holidays a time of greater connection for all of us  – and a time of joy for these  families by providing holiday gifts and much more. There are many ways to engage:
