A great way to give back!

The Adopt-A-Family holiday gift program is our community tradition of providing gifts for families being served by our agency. Thanks to sponsors and donors like you, the holidays are a little brighter.

Adopt-A-Family relies on the generosity of sponsors – either individuals, families, teams, organizations and/or businesses who commit to adopting a single family or multiple families. The sponsor purchases and provides holiday gifts for each child in the family/families (Adopt-A-Family will provide the family’s wish list and sizes).

Key Dates

By November 10
You may request family size, type, and ages – we will make every effort to match your requests. Early registration ensures the best match!

Registered sponsors are notified of the family match and given a suggestion gift/shopping list.
Donations after November 30
Financial donors may continue to donate checks or provide gift cards (in $25 increments) so that families who were not able to participate in the “sponsor matched” portion of the program can still be supported (limited, depending on availability).
