Findlay Street Adopt-a-Family Christmas Drive


For many years, St. Barnabas has hosted an Adopt-a-Family Christmas program for clients at Findlay Street Neighborhood House, providing food and gifts for the holiday season.


Due to Covid-19 restrictions, instead of providing physical gifts and groceries, we will purchase Walmart charitable gift cards, which will help clients purchase things like food for children's meals while they're home from school on winter break, clothing and toys, but cannot be used for liquor, tobacco, firearms or lottery tickets.


We need your help! Our goal is to provide 45 families in need with gift cards for presents and groceries.


Please fill out our easy online form to let us know how much you would like to give.


All donations are welcome, no matter the size. Every dollar helps!


We estimate the following costs in gift card amounts:

- Gifts or food for a 1 to 3 member family - $150

- Gifts or food for a 4 to 6 member family - $200

- Gifts or food for a family of 7 or more - $300


Once you pledge, you will receive confirmation once you click submit. Please follow up with a payment via Venmo (@StBarnabas-Church) or check made out to St. Barnabas Episcopal Church that you can either drop off at the office or mail in–and be sure to indicate your donation is for Findlay Street.


If you have questions, please reach out to Margaret Nelsen or Merrily Davis.


Thank you for supporting this longstanding St. Barnabas tradition!
