Holiday Project / Adopt a Family

The Lamoille Family Center organizes two projects every year to make the holidays a bit brighter for area families.

Holiday Project

Parents (or guardians) who have registered with the Family Center choose new toys for their children as well as donated books, hats and mittens. Families must pre-register to participate.

If you are a family that could use the extra assistance during this holiday season, call to get details and register at 888-5229 ext 120 or click here to email.

You can help by:

  • Donating new, unwrapped toys, stocking stuffers, hats and mittens for children up to age 12
  • Donating new or used children’s books
  • Donating money to be used to purchase toys needed for a particular age group of children
  • Volunteering your time to help staff the event
  • Referring families in need to this project
  • Asking friends, family, co-workers, etc. to donate to this project

For more information about how you can help, please call 888-5229 ext 150 or click here to email.

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.  To adopt a family’s wishlist, call 888-5229 x150.

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.
  • For more information about how you can help, please call 888-5229 ext 150 or click here to email
