A Home For The Holidays 2020

Thank you all!

For 2020, A Home for the Holidays went virtual!

With 2020 being the bizarre and unprecedented year that it has been, the annual A Home for the Holidays Gala & Auction went online and so many of our friends and supporters and adoption families went online and showed up for the kids and their community. 

We want to give a HUGE thank you to Robb Holloway and Sid Voorhees for running the show and making the hour-long broadcast such a delight. We also thank Dave at Zion Ideas Productions for producing the show and making this all possible. And we thank the Boy Scouts of Eugene for hosting our small team and giving us the space to run the show. 

We want to thank this year's A Home for the Holidays sponsors for continuing to support us and show up for our youth. We also want to thank every business and person who contributed items and time to our auction. Even through these troubling times, so many of you were able to support us and our mission, and we couldn't be more grateful.

Stay tuned for a full wrap up and see how this year turned out. We also have Giving Tuesday coming up on December 1st, a day meant to give back to your community and support the causes you love.
