Thank You for supporting the LSSI Christmas Program!

Thank you for your interest in supporting the 2023 LSSI Christmas Program!  We are so thankful for the years of investment provided by our communities to the families supported by LSSI. 

We hope you will join us again this year and commit to support the Cup of Kindness program!

In 2023, we have seen a significant rise in the needs of families for basics, such as housing and utilities such as electricity and water.  Because of this increased need, we are asking our Christmas sponsors to support the Cup of Kindness instead of gift cards for clients to purchase Christmas gifts.

A donation to Cup of Kindness could support a family to avoid eviction, with a rent payment this month and on-going case management to ensure they establish a balanced family budget going forward – just as one example.

Additionally, LSSI is accepting donations for Christmas Eve family experience baskets.  Donors may provide full baskets or individual items.  Items for these baskets include:

  • Family Game or Activity (Must be new – any one of the following examples)
    • Games such as Guess Who, Uno, Trouble
    • 100 piece or less puzzles
    • Craft Kits such as friendship bracelets, rock painting
  • Food Activity – examples include:
    • Muffin mix and tin
    • S’mores kit
    • Cookie mix with sprinkles and frosting
  • Small gift card of $25 for milk/eggs/oil for food activity
  • Tub of Clorox wipes for clean-up
  • Bible and bookmark (LSSI will place bookmark in the story of Jesus’ birth in Luke)
  • A laundry basket to place all the items

Items for baskets and full baskets must be donated by December 15 to ensure distribution to families.  All donations can be accepted at LSSI Fort Wayne North (4031 N. Clinton St.).
