“One Story at a time”

In December 2004, co-founders Al and Chris Holdren decided to not buy Christmas gifts for each other but instead use the money to provide a family in need with a tree and presents for the holiday. Husband and wife team, Al and Chris, along with their two daughters, Katie and Maddie set up two tables in their garage, added a couple of Santa hats, some wrapping paper and bows and the Secret Families Christmas Charity was started.

As the family continued wrapping, Al’s brother in law arrived with his family and inquired about what they were doing. Within the hour, his credit card in hand and the kids in the van, at 11 PM they were headed back to Meijer to buy for a second family that year.

“The name and secret part of Secret Families came from a friend that suggested the name based upon what I told him my family was going to do this Christmas. He asked that I use some money that he gave me to sponsor a family in need, but kept it a Secret”.

-Al and Chris Holdren, Co-founders
