Things to know about Adopt a Family program:

    Please complete your sponsorship form by no later than NOVEMBER 11, 2022!  The COST of your ADOPT-A-FAMILY Gift Cards and Vouchers will be determined by family size. All gifts card(s) must be dropped off by November 28th, 2022.  The following costing guide will assist you in deciding which size family is best suited to your budget.

    Grocery Voucher

    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.

    • $125 for a family of 2 or 3
    • $150 for a family of 4
    • $175 for a family of 5
    • $200 for a family of 6
    • $225 for a family of 7

    Once matched with a family, we will let you know which grocery store best suits their needs.

    Please do not send non-perishable food in place of vouchers.

    The family composite list will provide ideas for specific gift cards that align with interests/hobbies.
    Please expect to spend $125 per child in gift cards/vouchers.
