Support families in America.
Millions of families in the U.S. are finding it tough to make ends meet.
Your gift delivers essentials like brand-new clothing, blankets, personal care items — even toys. And thanks to generous donations from retailers and manufacturers, your gift will multiply 16 times in impact.
More than 1 in 6 children in America live in poverty. As safety networks fray, World Vision and its community partners are working tirelessly to help children and families who are struggling in the United States to get the basics they need.
Your donation will help deliver top-quality donated products to struggling families and single mothers like Kelsey — for whom the gift of new furniture means a place for her family to gather together.
Pregnant with her first child at 17, Kelsey’s partner pressured her into drug use and physically abused her. Over the next decade, Kelsey’s intermittent drug use and abusive partners brought instability to her six kids, despite her efforts to get clean and care for her family.
In 2020, Kelsey committed to getting drug-free for her kids, even gaining enough stability to find a home for them all. After joining a church near her home, the church’s pastors reached out to Kelsey with the offer of brand-new furniture. Thanks to corporate donations given through World Vision, churches and community partners like this one can provide brand-new furniture to families who need it most.
When her family went to pick up the furniture, Kelsey chose a bed for her 11-year-old son, Timmothy, and a brand-new sectional couch. She says, “It’s big enough for all of us to sit together as a family and have family time.”
She also picked a kid-sized picnic table. “We have a firepit out back so as it starts to get warmer, we’re definitely going to be having some fires and cookouts and things like that,” she says. “So, it’ll definitely be a perfect place for kids to sit and enjoy the outside.”
Kelsey says this surprise present means she can provide an even greater sense of home for her children as they begin anew.
You can help more hardworking families like Kelsey’s with your gift today!
Multiplier can vary throughout the year.
Your gift is a sacred trust. We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The gift options shown reflect World Vision projects and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears, and donations will be used to provide assistance within that gift category where it is needed most. When you give any animal gift, a portion of the gift may also help provide watering sources, farming assistance, hunger relief, and other related essentials as needed.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
