Blizzard of Giving

Each holiday season, Arms Wide conducts a gift card drive in greater Houston and South Texas called Blizzard of Giving. Gift cards collected during Blizzard of Giving are used as holiday gifts for older children involved in our foster care and adoption programs. Any additional gift cards left over after holiday presents are distributed are given to families in crisis throughout the year to help with emergency expenses.

Gift cards from Target, Walmart and Amazon tend to be the most versatile and useful for Arms Wide’s families. American Express/Visa gift cards are wonderful and incredibly versatile, too. Gift cards of any denomination would be much appreciated by our children and families!


Gift cards can be directed to:

Arms Wide Adoption Services
Attn: Blizzard of Giving
6925 Portwest Drive, Suite 110
Houston, Texas  77024


To ensure we are able to provide gifts in time for the holidays, the deadline for 2018 contributions is Friday, December 14, 2018. Thank you for your support and for making the holidays brighter for the children we serve!

If you or your company is interested in participating in Blizzard of Giving or learning more about how you can help make the holidays brighter for children in need, please contact our office at   713-681-6991.
