Holiday Opportunities

We have several new opportunities to support the families at BHA during the holidays.  Here are some of the ways in which you as individuals, families, small groups or entire churches can support the BHA families during the holiday season:


  • Christmas Apartment Decorations – Make Christmas a little more festive for a family at BHA! Volunteers will provide a 5-foot artificial tree and all the decorations necessary for the families to decorate their apartments for the holidays. These items should be delivered to BHA no later than Monday, November 30th.

  • Christmas Adopt-A-Family – Help provide a special Christmas to our BHA families! Choose the family size you would like to adopt and provide gifts for each family member in the household. BHA moms will provide a wish list of important details for each family member including name, age, gender, clothing size, and suggested gift ideas. Using this list, gifts will be purchased for each family member, wrapped, and include a gift tag with each individual’s name. All gifts are to be delivered to BHA no later than Friday, December 18, 2020.

  • Holiday Meals – Thank you for choosing to provide a holiday dinner for a family at BHA. Thanksgiving boxes should be delivered to BHA no later than Thursday, November 19th. Christmas boxes should be delivered no later than Friday, December 18th.


All Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner boxes should contain the list of items below:​

  • Instant mashed potatoes (1 large box)
