Help a family in need

Youth Eastside Services

Help YES bring hope and light to families who have trouble affording basic necessities.

Last year, YES’ seasonal Adopt-a-Family program allowed generous donors to give much-needed support to 50 Eastside families during the holidays. Join us by sponsoring a family this year.

As an Adopt-A-Family sponsor, you’ll be matched with a YES family in need to whom you’ll commit to giving:

  • A $50 gift card for each child in the family — so their parent or guardian can shop for the perfect gift.
  • A $50 gift card to help the family purchase food or other needed household items.

Recommended gift cards include Fred Meyer/QFC, Safeway, Wal-Mart, Target or Toys-R-Us.

You may sponsor one family or several families, and you can designate how many children should be in the family you sponsor. If you’re not able to sponsor an entire family, you can still help! Donating even one gift card is very much appreciated, as it can be combined with other cards to fulfill a family’s needs.

To participate, simply complete our online form by Friday, Nov. 25. Gift cards should be dropped off or mailed to YES’ Bellevue location by Friday, Dec. 16:
