Adopt-a-Family

You can help bring happiness to others this holiday season, especially to children and families in our Foster Care and Adoption Program, Counseling Programs, Residential Treatment Program and the Stanley G. Falk School. Adopt-a-Family Program pairs donors with families by giving a wish list and a brief narrative of the family’s background. Through the overwhelming support of our donors last year, Child & Family Services provided gifts to more than 400 individuals. Below are a few of the heartwarming messages we have received from families:

“Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart. My words can’t thank you enough!”

“It was so wonderful to smile and know that people out there really care.”

"Thank you for helping to make this Christmas such a blessing…"

Donors are asked to bring unwrapped, new gifts for each family member to Child & Family Services from Tuesday, December 16, 2014 through Thursday, December 18, 2014.

If you are unable to provide for an entire family, gift items for teenagers and adults, or gift cards for Target, Wal-Mart, gas stations and movie theatres are also welcome. We are also in need of volunteers to assist during the gift drop-off week.
