Adopt a Family
Through the generosity of our community this invaluable opportunity affords our families the chance to be privately adopted by a family, group or business. Allowing them to enjoy the season of giving without stress or worry, knowing there will be food on the table and gifts for their children.
If you were a sponsor, or if you are considering being a sponsor…thank you this program cannot happen without you!
Cost: Please expect the average overall cost to be approximately $100 per person including gifts for each child, a small parent gift and the appropriate grocery voucher.
Grocery Voucher: PLEASE include a voucher for your family’s dinner. We will let you know which grocery store best suits “your particular family’s needs”.
- $100 for a family of 2 or 3
- $125 for a family of 4
- $150 for a family of 5
- $175 for a family of 6
- $200 for a family of 7
The opportunity to personally shop for their own families is an added bonus for many of our clients; plus traditions vary and allergies abound. By providing this independence, you are enhancing their gift!
Wish List: The child’s “Wish List” will be supplied to you for ideas and sizes - these are only suggestions. Books, PJs, socks or underwear, plus stocking stuffers are also suggested presents for your sponsored child up to 18 years of age. Gift certificates are ideal for older siblings. Small gifts for parents or caregiver(s) are equally enjoyed by children.
NOTE: We respectfully ask that you do not include USED toys and/or USED clothing.
Toiletries, plus: Items we take for granted are warmly welcomed: toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo/conditioner, soap, disposable cameras, chocolates, candy, cookies, hot chocolate or holiday napkins.
