Help Make the Holidays Special
THANK YOU for considering a contribution to Alpha House of Tampa during the 2014 Holiday Season. We are so grateful for the extraordinary generosity of the community to our Alpha House moms and families during the holidays.
Our hope for each of our Alpha House moms and their children is that they will receive the support and gain the skills they need to succeed when they leave Alpha House. We realize that a lavish holiday here at Alpha House sets up unrealistic expectations that cannot possibly be met when the moms move out on their own. And like every family, we try to focus on the true spirit of the holidays. To help achieve this goal, we have modified the Alpha Angels program to empower each mom to provide a meaningful holiday experience for her family.
For the moms: We will provide you with a wish list that was completed by an Alpha House of Tampa mom with her gift preferences. We ask that you purchase items from the list within a total budget of $100 per mom.
For the children: We will provide you with the name and age of a child and ask that you purchase a small gift (under $25) and provide $50 in Walmart gift cards so that the child’s mother can shop for the child, perhaps for the first time ever. Alpha House staff will help the moms shop within the budget of $50 per child to develop the money management skills they will need when they leave Alpha House of Tampa.
If you would like to be a part of the Alpha Angels program and are unable to do the shopping yourself, we welcome donations of gift cards in the amount of $25 or less from: Target, Wal-Mart, Macy’s, JCPenney, Aeropostale, Claire’s, Starbucks, Panera, Papa John’s Pizza
A cash donation to Alpha House of Tampa supports our work during the holidays and throughout the year. Donate online at www.alphahouseoftampa.org or mail your tax-deductible contribution to: Alpha Angels, Alpha House of Tampa, 201 S. Tampania Avenue, Tampa, FL 33609. Questions?
