However, due to limited funds, not all applicants will be chosen as recipients. Priority is given to families with proven needs based on household size and income. The program provides recipients with gifts and necessities from their individual wish lists. Every effort is made to meet each family's wish list, but fulfilling their "needs" takes precedence over fulfilling "wants." Please refrain from requesting large items such as gaming consoles or electronics.
