Sponsorship Information Guidelines
With the changing seasons, we did not anticipate that the effects of a global pandemic would again influence our annual Christmas program. Community Care is proud to recognize that services to those in need in our community has remained consistent despite Covid restrictions. Adapting processes and protocols continues in the services that are provided daily and necessitates once again adaptations to the ADOPT A FAMILY program. The adaptations to the ADOPT A FAMILY program last season will continue in 2021. While it means a different experience for both sponsors and families you can be assured that recipient families remain thrilled at being “adopted”. The generosity of you our sponsors will keep the “magic’ of the season just that for “your” sponsored families.
The 2021 AAF program model will again utilize gift cards/gift vouchers ONLY. Your family composite information will continue to allow for item specific (targeted) gift cards (toys/sports/music/clothing etc.). We appreciate that this change to your “shopping” is significant but recognize that the benefactors of your kindness, “your sponsored family” remain grateful. Eliminating the handling of actual hard goods by sponsors, families, staff, and volunteers supports the need to stay safe and remain well. We are grateful for your past participation/interest in the Adopt a Family Program (AAF) and hope you will consider private sponsorship through the AAF program. Your generosity and kindness are much appreciated. We look forward to working with you again this holiday season providing a magical holiday for sponsored families.

Cost: The amount is determined by family size and this costing guide will assist you in deciding which size family is best suited to your budget.
We ask that each family receive a grocery voucher so that they may experience the spirit of the season when shopping for the ingredients to make their own Christmas dinner. They won’t just be making dinner; they’ll be making memories. Shopping for their food allows our families to cater to any special dietary needs or allergies and provides them with independence that will enhance your generous gift.
