The Place of Forsyth Holiday House Information
The holiday season will be here soon! In Forsyth County, we have a tradition of working together to take care of those in our community. Six years ago, a partnership between the local businesses, nonprofit agencies, faith community, and the school system resulted in the The Place Holiday House program.
This year due to Covid the The Place Holiday House format will be a little different. Instead of parents shopping for gifts for their children, we will ask for a wish list for each child and have our volunteers bag the gifts. Once gifts are ready, parents will receive a text message on where and when to pickup toys. We hope to provide assistance to families again this year with the generous support of our faith, business, and school communities.
Who: Parents may sign up children who are 0 months (born) - 18 years old (in high school). Families
will need to provide the following documentations:
• Picture ID (i.e. driver’s license, passport, consulate ID)
• Proof of Forsyth County Residency (i.e. lease, utility bill, vehicle registration, rent receipt)
• Proof of Income for the past 30 days for all individuals living in the household (i.e. paystubs, Social
Security Letter, Disability, Food Stamp letter, unemployment letter, TANF, WIC)
• Proof of Guardianship for each child (i.e Medicaid/Peach Care card, Report Card, Free & Reduced
Lunch email, Medicaid or Food Stamp letter with child’s name, guardianship papers)
To Apply please complete this application, wish list and submit the required documents to The Place of Forsyth website: https://www.theplaceofforsyth.org
*The program is a community initiative, so there is no guarantee of child/family confidentiality. *
