2017 Holiday Giving Opportunities



For 20 years, Brent’s Place has provided a home away from home to more than 1,000 families living with cancer and other immunocompromising conditions. Help us make the holidays special for our families staying at Brent’s Place and meet the needs of more families in 2018. Choose how you want to make a difference with your company, family or friends!

Donate Online for the Holidays

Participate in our 20 Years of Home Campaign and help us provide a home for 20 new families. Our campaign goal is $360,000 by December 31, 2017. Donate or plan a mini fundraiser with your coworkers, church group, or other organization - make it fun! We'll provide all the materials you need, and the group that raises the most money will be recognized on social media and in our January newsletter! Contact: Annie Thompson,

There are many ways you can help us provide a holiday to remember for all the children and families calling Brent's Place home this holiday season.



LINENS!! Every new family to Brent’s Place receives a new set of bed sheets to minimize the spread of germs. This is our BIGGEST supply need right now. Sheet sets, comforters, and mattress pads, for queen-size and twin extra-long. Please help! We need it all!!



Host a gift card and/or outing drive: 
Help our families who are burdened with medical costs pay for some expenses year round or help pay for a family outing! Ideas include gift cards to gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants, the zoo, a museum or sporting event tickets.
GivingIcons_giftcards.pngWhy gift cards? Occasionally families are air-flighted to the hospital with nothing but the clothes on their back.  Gift cards help them buy the necessities they need to get them through the weeks or months ahead.  Gift cards are also great for our teenagers who can use them to pick out their own special gifts for themselves. The most needed gift cards are for Target, Walmart, Amazon, Walgreens, King Soopers, and gas stations.  Gift cards for nearby restaurants are also greatly appreciated: Noodles, Chipotle, Which Wich, and Panera.


Adopt a family ($600-$850)  
For our families, Brent’s Place is their home for the holidays. You can help make it special! When you adopt a family, you’ll work with our Family Services team to be matched with a family depending on what you are looking for and your cost range. We’ll give you that family’s gift wish list for the holidays, tell you a little about them, and then your group goes shopping for them! Bring back the gifts by Dec. 20th and volunteers will wrap them for the families. 






Adopt stockings for a family ($200-$500) 
Stockings are a fun way to give back to the families at Brent’s Place! When you adopt stockings, you’ll work with the Family Services team to be matched with a family and their general interests. You’ll get to learn more about the family and then go shopping for them! Bring back the stockings (nothing wrapped please) by Dec. 20th and volunteers will deliver them to the families.




Sponsor a holiday meal ($150-$300)

Food is such an important part of the holidays! Help families with a holiday meal by donating $150 or $300 (for larger families) or by giving Brent’s Place a gift card to Whole Foods for those amounts.
 Visit our Brent's Place holiday sponsorship page to sponsor one or more meals or provide a Whole Foods Gift Card that can be used toward the meals.


Gift supply drive 
For families who arrive at Brent’s Place just before the holidays and for our holiday boutique, we post a wishlist on Amazon for general gift ideas. These items are extras that family members can choose from to give to each other.

Don't forget our teenagers this holiday season! They enjoy typical teenager things like gift cards, jewelry, headphones, video games, journals, and DVDs.

Host a caregiver gift drive:  We currently have about 30 caregivers who are taking care of their children, grandchildren, and loved ones.  They have given up so much and deserve to be spoiled during the holidays.  Help make their holidays special too!



Other supplies: We always need things like hand soap, hand sanitizer, dishwasher detergent and towels. See our Amazon Wishlist at and do a supply drive with your family or friends!


Visit our Amazon wish list for gift ideas or to purchase a gift.  You do not have to purchase through Amazon directly, we use this platform as an easy way to build a visual gift list.

We invite your family, friends or company to help make the holidays special
for Brent’s Place families.
