Every year, we provide an opportunity to bring joy to a family that’s holiday season looks and sounds a little different. Through our Holiday Program, our shelter residents and community families who have experienced domestic abuse are able to have some normalcy during the holidays through gifts donated by generous sponsors. In 2020, we were able to provide 200 women, men, and children with the joy and hope that comes with these gifts! Whether you are participating with coworkers or with family, this program is a great opportunity to start a conversation about domestic violence and how it effect’s individuals in our community and gives you an opportunity to show survivors support during an often challenging time of year.

We are looking for sponsors of individuals and families in both La Crosse and Trempealeau Counties for the 2021 holiday season! Sponsors can find register using the form below. Once you are registered, you will be contacted by the Holiday Program coordinator, Jen,  and receive a specific list of needs and wants for the individual or family you have been matched with. Sponsors will deliver gifts to the La Crosse Outreach Center between December 6th and 10th.

Sponsors are able to give to the program by sponsoring a family or individual, hosting a giving tree, or making a monetary donation. See a sample wishlist for sponsoring a family or individual here. Giving trees are typically done by a business, club, or organization, and as a group, they collect specific items to donate to New Horizons. Monetary donations to the program will be used to provide gifts for families or individuals that haven’t been sponsored.
