Yes, we respect the wishes of our Sponsors to remain anonymous if they desire.

7. What if my family or company wants to spend more than the recommended amount on the Gift Card Package?

Sometimes Sponsors (individuals and organizations) collect a lot more for their adopted family than expected. If this should happen, we would ask that you or drop off any excess gift cards when you deliver your Gift Card Package to the Lioness. The more families you are able to help, the more Christmas spirit you are able to share.

8. I would like to contribute, but can't afford to sponsor a family.

We recognize that not everyone is able to adopt-a-family, and we greatly appreciate your willingness to help. Every little donation towards our program counts - whether it is a single gift card or $10.00 in cash. Please feel free to give any size of donation.

9. Can I specify the size of family and children's ages of the family I wish to sponsor?

This year is a little different, you may request a family size, but unfortunately we will not be matching sponsors with specific families. We will take your gift cards and match them to families based on ages.

Official Tax receipts are also available for All financial donations of $20.00 or more. Tax Receipts are also available for the Gift Card Packages provided that you complete the "downloadable Tax Receipt Form" and submit the original store receipts at the time you drop off your package. .
