Adopt a Family Project

Families are referred by a service provider to participate in this project, where they are matched with a donor (family, business, religious group, etc) who shops for the members of the family based upon items listed on a wish list. Families can only participate in this project once in a lifetime.

To refer a family, call 888-5229.

You can help by:

  • Becoming a donor (alone or as part of a larger group)
  • Referring families in need to this project
  • Asking friends, family and co-workers to donate with you.
