Spread the Christmas spirit!

Dec 20, 2018

With Christmas time fast approaching, we would like to spread joy and kindness through giving back and paying it forward. We therefore invite our members, partners and friends to support the initiatives of three principal charities AmCham has been supporting for many years: Latvian Foster Family Association, RMHC Latvija Care Mobile and SOS Children's Villages.

When you make a contribution to one of our charities, you make a difference in the lives of children and their families. Below is more information about the needs of each organization, and we encourage to support them either directly by a donation or through in-kind services.

The Latvian Foster Family Association (LFFA) is looking for both in-kind and financial donations to support the children in foster care. By becoming a donor you will help bring Christmas joy to children in need. They welcome donation of books, games, food or sweets as Christmas presents and/or financial donation to support the activities of LFFA. Both personalized and non-personalized presents are also welcome.

For more information and wish lists, please contact Ilze Golvere, LFFA Managing Director: Mob. +371 26004103, labiedriba@gmail.com
