What is Family to Family?

The family to family project began 13 years ago here at American Martyrs and is a Thanksgiving and Christmas tradition here in the parish.

We sponsor families from our sister parish, St. Lawrence of Brindisi with gifts for the holidays…without us, they may not have a Thanksgiving meal or Christmas for their families. The families fill out an application for the program based on financial need, and are interviewed by staff members of the St. Lawrence parish.

If you’ve sponsored a family in the past, you know that the gift is truly given back to you by the project, it’s an amazing feeling. If you haven’t participated, we encourage you to do so this year.
We have approximately 400 families that we sponsor each year and we need your help.
Team up with family and friends to sponsor a larger family.
Group together to sponsor even a small family – there is no limit to what we can do if we work together.
Please remember that this is a two-fold project…both the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays!

Sign-ups for the F2F Project are typically the first two weekends in November.
