the project

We are looking for donations to purchase food supplies, gifts and material needed to make this event a success. This December we will be hosting a Couture Christmas for several families throughout Cuyahoga County. We have taken the initiative to adopt grandparent and single father homes. This year we want to be a blessing and we need your help. We have several business sponsors for each family selected to purchase gifts for the children within the family. 

the steps

1.) purchase material needed 

2.) purchase food

3.) purchase gifts 

4) Celebrate!

why we're doing it

Christmas is Christmas to all children across the world. However, some homes aren’t as jolly on Christmas morning due to lack of resources available in the home. This project will allow a few homes within the county to still be happy during the Christmas holiday and not stress about economical issues within their home/community. We believe this project will reduce negative behaviors that could have potentially become had the guardians not been blessed with the resources to provide for their small children. We are passionate about grandparents raising their grandchildren because we know that it is huge sacrifice for them to do something they already did. Most grandparents are on a fixed income and can’t hardly maintain the day to day needs. We believe single fathers are overlooked and we want to encourage them to continue to work hard and allow them to know we support you too.
