Prepare your family for the process.
Sample language to help prepare your children in case the receiving child unexpectedly cannot attend the event:
- “We hope to meet the family today at the event. If not, I’m sure they will receive the school supplies later and appreciate them when they go back to school. Either way, you sure did a great thing today.”
While most Givers have an incredible experience, please know we cannot guarantee a perfect experience.
Sometimes the child’s parents work several jobs, don’t have reliable transportation or someone gets sick—and they don’t show up at the event. That rarely happens, but is always a possibility.
In case a family doesn’t show up, our staff will work with you to find the best solution.
