About Armful of Love

360 Communities Armful of Love is more than a holiday gift program. We turn the holidays into a profound opportunity for the community to connect with families through gifts, toys and hope. Armful of Love matches families in need with donors, and also provides resources to families that help pave the way to self-sufficiency.


In 2013, 360 Communities successfully matched 1108 families with sponsors. Dedicated volunteers help make this program a reality, donating their time and talent between September and December each year. If you would like to be a part of the Armful of Love team, please sign up for volunteer shift here:
