Adopt-A-Family Project

As a community we have an opportunity to ease the struggles of families in our community and make the holidays brighter for our neighbors. Each year the Volunteer Center partners with 25 fellow non-profits to meet the needs of 400+ families struggling to make ends meet. Our non-profit partners provide us with a short bio about each family and a list of the items that each family member requests. Adopt a Family Project volunteers then set to work connecting these families with donors who shop for them for the holidays.  Requests include basic necessities like sheets, towels, or shoes along with special gift requests for the children.

All of these families are struggling with special circumstances such as: homelessness, parents in recovery, parents or children with disabilities, victims of violent crime, families facing serious health challenges or other hardships.
