Now in its 70th year, Gift Lift is a program where gifts are collected, wrapped, and distributed through the help of corporate sponsors and community volunteers. In 2019, over 700 gifts were donated to individuals with mental health challenges living in residential programs, state hospitals, and other community settings in the Greater Indianapolis area.  

Interested in getting involved? You can: 

Wish List: Become a Gift Lift Ambassador for your place of business, church, or school. Tell us how many gifts you would like on your wish list and we will provide a company-specific virtual wish list, with suggested items to be purchased and shipped to Families First. Individuals can also be a Gift Lift Partner. 

Donate Funds for Gifts: Donations will be used to support the purchase of gifts for individuals in need.

Salute to Families 

Salute to Families provides an opportunity for you to become inspired, connected, and engaged in supporting the human services provided by Families First. It also serves to raise your awareness about the many challenges faced by individuals and families here in central Indiana and the great work happening to strengthen and empower each of them.

Funds raised go directly to help local individuals and families find supportive services to move past challenging situations and reach their full potential. 

The 2020 two-week virtual campaign kicked off via a Facebook Premiere video on September 24. We raised over $50,000 thanks to support from the community.  Be sure you stay informed about how you can make an impact in your community! Sign up for our eNews.
