Holiday Giving

There are many ways to support our youth and young adults in crisis this holiday season. Please reach out to April Vahey, Development Officer, at avahey@therelatives.org or 704.501.8247 if you have any questions about how you can make the season brighter for our kids!

Double your Impact on Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday (#GivingTuesday) is a global day of giving celebrated the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, December 3. To help raise awareness of charitable causes and amplify donors’ generosity, Facebook will match eligible donations up to the full match amount that are made on Facebook during Giving Tuesday 2019. Take advantage of this amazing way to make your gift go even further.

Spread the Word with a Facebook Fundraiser

Tell your friends and family how you’ll be supporting your community with a Facebook fundraiser. Every dollar goes straight to our youth and young adults so that they can celebrate the season.

Donate your Time

Help us deck the halls of our Youth Crisis Center, hand out gifts at our On Ramp Resource Center holiday party, or serve a warm breakfast to our young adults. There are lots of opportunities to connect with our kids and give the best gift of all – yourself! Contact Christina Nunez, Volunteer Engagement Officer, at cnunez@therelatives.org or 704.501.8258 for more information on how to get involved.

Support our End of Year Campaign

As we get ready to close the books on another calendar year, we rely on our generous donors to help us end on a high note. Your financial support shows time and time again that someone cares. Make your gift today and give our young adults the tools they need to succeed.
