The Adopt-A-Family Program matches donors with families in need in order to make Christmas shine a little brighter. In 2019, with the support of our generous community of donors, we were able to provide Christmas gifts and grocery cards for 1,287 families and independent youth, which included 2,821 children and youth.
Families are referred to us by social service agencies who have identified they are in need. Adopt-A-Family is about more than gifts under the tree; it's about providing families with support and hope during the holidays. While children's wish lists include all the normal gifts that any child would want, the families' needs very often include basic necessities such as diapers, bedding and winter clothing.
*While Adopt-A-Family is a Christmas holiday program, it is open to people of all backgrounds and traditions.
