The Season of Giving Starts

with Sponsor A Family



Be part of the best day of the year for thousands of families!

We’re hoping to make this Christmas the best one ever for families and children in Brooklyn and Queens. The annual Sponsor A Family signature event at Bread and Life welcomes everyone. Inside the warm, cheerful Bread and Life “home,” is a Christmas tree, brightly wrapped presents, Santa, companionship and hospitality waiting for all. The joy of Sponsor A Family is made possible by hundreds of volunteers and the generous donations we receive to cover the costs of toys and holiday meals. Your gift will help us give over 5,000 children and young teens new, age-appropriate gifts, and provide 2,000 families with a delicious meal with special treats (enough for six meals) to share at home together. Our homeless guests are gifted with warm gloves, hats and socks. 

Hope, Cheer and Comfort. Won’t you help us continue the miracle?
