Each year local businesses support the Adopt-A-Family project by displaying stars in their businesses. These gifts are then donated to families that are not adopted or our partner agencies, including local families impacted by the criminal justice system.
Our Stars Program is now complete for 2020. Thank you for your generous support this year.
Ways to Give a Gift Through our Stars Program
Host Stars at Your Business
Join us as Stars Program host by collecting gifts for families. We can drop off stars and information about Adopt-A-Family to your store asap. We will then pick up the gifts that are donated in mid-December. Email us or call us at (831) 427-5070 x119 to learn more.
Pick up a Star
Stop by one of our partner businesses to pick up a star. On that star, you will find a gift request from a local family. Purchase that gift and then bring it back to the business where you picked up the star. Please note, we can only accept new items. See below for our 2020 partners.
Take the Reins
Buy whatever you like and drop it off at one of the businesses collecting donations listed below or at our Santa Cruz Office. We always need more grocery store gift cards and backpacks for teens. Please Note: We are not able to accept used donations.
