We look forward to seeing you again this year!

Holiday Giving Programs 

Thanksgiving Program

Each year, Families Forward holds a Thanksgiving-themed grocery distribution for local families in need. The weekend before Thanksgiving, families come to our program center to receive all of the traditional Thanksgiving fixings to cook a warm, delicious holiday meal.

We are currently seeking donations for our Thanksgiving Food Drive.

Holiday Wish Program

The Holiday Wish Program offers a chance to make a real difference during a potentially tough time. It allows individuals, companies, and community organizations to create cherished holiday moments for deserving families, sharing love, joy, and warmth with those who truly appreciate it. Donations are welcome from early November to early December, ensuring kids’ ‘wish lists’ are fulfilled. To take part, you must be able to deliver donations to our office in Irvine.

Holiday Toys/Gift Drive

Join forces with us to create an unforgettable holiday season for at-risk kids and teens. We have compiled a list of commonly requested gift items to make it easy for you to contribute. Together, let’s bring joy and happiness to these deserving young individuals during this special time of year.
