Holiday Giving Opportunities



Support our Growing Home campaign

Help us raise $550,000 by December 31st
to provide a home for 38 families! 

For 21 years, Brent’s Place has provided a home away from home to more than 1,000 families living with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Help us make the holidays special for our families staying at Brent’s Place and meet the needs of more families in 2019. Choose how you want to make a difference with your family or friends!

Donate Online for the Holidays

Help us grow home at Brent’s Place. Donate or plan a mini fundraiser with your family, 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 to learn more:

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-$1000)  
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. 12th and volunteers will wrap them for the families. 




Sponsor a holiday meal ($100-$200)

Help us provide families at Brent’s Place with a delicious and nutritious meal for the holidays!  Make an online donation at and indicate that it is for a holiday meal in the comment.



Gift drives are how we fill the tables of the Brent’s Place holiday boutique where families can “shop” for special gifts for each of their family members. We will need toys, gifts for older kids and caregivers, as well as stocking stuffers. This is a great way to get family and friends involved!


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.
