The Gift Fund

The holiday season signifies a time that many of us spend with family and friends, reminiscing about holidays gone by and showing our love for one another.  For some of the individuals served by Gaston Residential Services (GRS), there are no family members and few friends to share the spirit of the holiday season. 

In hopes of providing those individuals with the feelings of “home” during the holiday season, GRS established the Holiday Gift Fund.  For a number of years the gift fund has used generous contributions provided by its Board of Directors, GRS staff and members of the community to provide gifts for the people GRS serves who would not otherwise experience these tokens of love and support.  In years past, the Holiday Gift Fund has been used to purchase jackets/coats, shoes and clothing or other necessary items that individuals need to live comfortably.  In addition, the Gift Fund has purchased items to promote the feeling of “home,” such as new bedding, pillows or towels. 

No contribution is too small.  GRS is a tax exempt 501c3 organization and your contribution may be tax deductible.  Please consider making a donation to the GRS Holiday Gift Fund this season.  GRS would like to thank you in advance for your generosity.  To all of our families and friends may this be a peaceful holiday season and a prosperous new year.
