Gifts of Love for Those Who Have Everything and Those Who Have Nothing

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (Nov. 4, 2016)  You can make this Christmas season more meaningful and give a gift that gives back long after the holidays have passed.

Food For The Poor's annual Christmas Gift Catalog is filled with heartfelt gifts that epitomize the spirit of giving and will positively change the lives of those who have nothing.

For as little as $30, you can give school supplies and a soccer ball to a child for a year, ensuring they have all they need to learn and do well in school as well as play and get plenty of exercise. For $100, you can provide a computer work station which opens doors to another world for a child living in poverty and better equips them to further their education and become competitive in the workforce. And for as little as $43.80, your Christmas gift can feed a hungry child for a year.

Animals are another welcomed gift.

For $90 you can give a goat that provides families with nutritious protein and a chance to break the cycle of poverty. The gift of baby chicks provides a poor family not only with a sustainable source of protein from eggs, but also with supplemental income from selling extra eggs. A gift of $25 provides 20 chicks or $125 for 100 chicks.

"Fashion and technology are constantly changing, but when you choose to give a gift to help the poor in rural communities, such as goats, donkeys, cows, chickens or pigs, you're giving a gift that will keep on giving," said Angel Aloma, Food For The Poor's Executive Director. "For destitute families these farm animals are a source of income and nutrition and will never go out of style."

Some of the catalog's creative gift ideas enable communities to sustain themselves economically. Tilapia ponds provide entire villages with an ongoing food source; fishing villages provide the boats, engines, tackle and equipment needed for the fishermen to support their families.

Your tax-deductible gift this holiday season will be used to further enhance these Food For The Poor projects and is greatly appreciated. The 2016 Christmas Gift Catalog can be accessed through the charity's secure website at
