Candy Cane Lane - Adopt A Family
December 15

Westside: A Jesus Church

Family Adoption Form + Flyer

Want to be Santa to a Candlelighters Family in need? Candy Cane Lane is our holiday event for families needing a helping hand during the holidays. Donors get paired with families to purchase presents and help fill the gaps that the holidays may leave. We ask that you sponsor a single family or as many families as you feel comfortable. The average cost is around $50-$70 per child, and we’ll provide you with a detailed wish list. You do all the shopping and wrapping, then you can drop off at our office or we’ll come pick up the presents from you!

Then, we host a Candy Cane Lane Party where families come and pick up their holiday gifts and also have an opportunity to share time with one another, visit Santa, crafts, play games, and share a meal. Together we’ll get to help make a difference for over 160 low-income children this holiday season! We are grateful to all of the businesses like Deacon Construction and individuals like the Bruno Family who help make Candy Cane Lane so special.
