HOLIDAY PROGRAM

REGISTRATION BEGINS
Sept. 12, 2019

Para español, haga clic aquí.

IFCS will be taking applications from low-income families, who would like to receive a Thanksgiving Basket and/or a December Holiday Basket from September 12, 2019 through October 31, 2019. Registration days are Tuesdays and Thursdays.

IFCS’ Holiday Program is designed to:

  • Give families the makings for 2 holiday meals (Thanksgiving and Christmas)
  • Relieve some of the financial burden that families experience during the season
  • Allow children to experience the joy and magic of the season

All families who register will be given a priority number.  This number is equal to the number of times in the past that the family has registered for the Holiday Program.  The higher the number, the less likely that family will be sponsored.  The lower the number, the more likely the family will be sponsored.

Want to speed up the process?

Registration Form

Please read requirements below, then complete and print the registration form prior to coming into the office.

Thanksgiving and Holiday Registration Form

Please note: All clients, whether you are a first time or a returning client, need to complete an intake form. Save yourself some time and fill it out now.  Also remember that you may not add new members to your household during Holiday Program registration.

Thanksgiving Basket Program

The IFCS staff has secured enough resources to provide a limited number of holiday meals. 

Holiday Adopt-A-Family Program

Due to the priority number system and depending on how many sponsors are available to sponsor families, we cannot guarantee that every family will be sponsored.

Click here for a PDF flyer with program details. 

Important Note:  It is possible that some families who are sponsored for Thanksgiving will not be sponsored for the Adopt-A-Family Program.  This will still add a number to a family’s priority number.
