Business Gift Certificates - Whatever your business does that might be enjoyed by a child or youth and an adult escort, we need donated gift certificates for fun activities, i.e. movie tickets, rides, bowling, haircuts, makeovers, clothing, food coupons, sporting events, concert passes, instruction, entertainment, etc. These certificates and coupons will be used for adoption recruitment activities throughout the year.
