Adopt-a-Family

Are you looking for ways to help this holiday season? We have a wonderful opportunity. Through our Adopt-a-Family Program, you can help children and families in our Foster Care and Adoption Program, Community-Based Counseling Programs, Residential Treatment Program or at the Stanley G. Falk School. The program connects donors and families in need with a wish-list for each member of the family. Through the generosity of our supporters last year, Child & Family Services was able to provide new gifts to more than 200 grateful families who sent messages like this,

"Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. My words can’t thank you enough!"
A caseworker also shared how much the community supports means.
“I am always so overwhelmed with emotions during the holiday season because the Adopt-a-Family Program is so generous and full of such amazing people.”

Donors are asked to bring unwrapped, new gifts for each family member to Child & Family Services on Monday, December 10 - Thursday, December 13. Registration for the program begins in mid-October.

If you are unable to provide for an entire family, gift cards for Target, Wal-Mart, gas stations and movie theatres are welcome. In addition, monetary donations are helpful. We also need volunteers to assist during gift drop-off.

For more information about volunteering and other donation opportunities, please contact Theresa DeLuca, Adopt-a-Family Program Coordinator, at (716) 335-7235 or tdeluca@cfsbny.org.
