We are so grateful for all those folks who adopted or donated to support our 500+ families in the Adopt a Family Project. Your help means over 2000 parents, children, seniors, and independent teens will have a brighter holiday.
If you didn’t get a chance to support the project and still want to lend a hand we are in need of volunteers to help in the warehouse and we are still welcoming in donations to supplement our family packages.
For those who adopted, our Adopt-a-Family Donation Warehouse opens in Watsonville this Friday, Dec. 4th and we want to ensure that you have all the information you need for a successful drop-off of your family packages.
Our warehouse will be open to receive gifts 8 days this year in order to accommodate early drop off and to adapt to our new system of gathering your gifts safely curbside.
The warehouse will accept family packages from 12pm to 7pm
on the following days:
Open- Friday, December 4- Sunday, December 6
Closed- Monday and Tuesday
Open- Wednesday, December 9- Sunday, December 13.
Pro Tip: Come early for a quicker donor drop-off. We expect that you will experience a shorter wait the first weekend we open and the following Wednesday or Thursday.
Donation Warehouse Location:
This is a vacant shop in the Crestview Shopping Center
(Next to La Princessa Market)

. Included in these instructions are how to package your gifts this year-
We ask that you include gender, age, and Family ID on all packages (for example boy 5, VSS 215, or mom/female 27, CS 202).
Again, from all of us here at the Volunteer Center and from our 28 partnering community programs, we want to say THANK YOU.
Thank you for your desire to be a part of our movement to inspire generosity and kindness in the people around you.
