Adopt White Swan Gift Donations
WHO DOES "ADOPT WHITE SWAN" SERVE?
It serves families who are regular attenders of Hope Fellowship who have determined felt needs.
WHY DID YOU CHANGE "ADOPT A FAMILY"?
This year we have changed the way we are collecting the gifts in order to better serve and meet the needs in the community of White Swan. Instead of collecting gifts for specific individuals, we are collecting the same sorts of gifts that were collected for Adopt a Family for men, women, teens, and children. The gifts coming without names allows the Sacred Road staff to deliver more gifts to a greater number of people who have determined felt needs.
WHAT CAN I DO?
You can provide commonly needed gifts (see list below) and food that we can deliver to households in the days leading up to Christmas.
HOW DO I ACCOMPLISH THIS?
Follow the approved lists. These lists have been carefully developed after many years of experience. Please do not purchase items that are not on the lists. All gifts need to be mailed to the Sacred Road Ministries physical address, 4711 Branch Road, Wapato, WA, 98951. All gifts need to be received by by Dec. 5th.
Please complete the form below with accurate quantities and submit it by November 27th so that we can know in advance what gifts to expect and make sure that we have enough for everyone.
WHEN AND WHERE DO THE GIFTS NEED TO BE SENT:
All gifts need to be mailed, unwrapped, to the Sacred Road physical address by December 5th: 4711 Branch Road - Wapato, WA 98933
Adopt a family is a way for the body of Christ to help meet the needs of the Church in White Swan.
CAN I DELIVER GIFTS MYSELF?
No. The goal is to provide opportunities for the Sacred Road staff to visit regular attenders of Hope Fellowship.

WHAT IS THE VALUE OF THIS PART OF SACRED ROAD MINISTRIES' CHRISTMAS OUTREACH?
This outreach generally serves about 200 individuals by giving gifts of a total value of around $5000 dollars.

One community member made a point of saying, "Thank you for remembering my kids.
