Back On Their Feet Holiday Support Fund

Because of COVID and other issues this year, Back On Their Feet has seen a huge increase in demand for holiday support.  At the same time, we are trying to make sure we keep all the members of our BOTF family safe.

Typically, we offer families the opportunity to "shop" at our free holiday store for gifts and household supplies, but this year that isn't possible, so we are trying to do things in a virtual way.

We are asking everyone who is able to consider donating generously.  We will do our best to serve as many people as we are able using a Mutual Aid model.

Also, if you have any gift cards that you won't be using, we'd love to be able to offer them - feel free to reach out through GoFundMeto make arrangements for us to get them.

Thank you all for your support, and please stay safe during this holiday season!
