Stars Program

Each  year local businesses step forward to sponsor the Adopt a Family Stars Project.

The Stars Project invites community members to choose a gift to purchase from the selection of items listed on stars located at that business and return the purchased item to the same location.

Gifts donated to the Stars program are distributed to families that are not adopted by an individual donor. All remaining gifts are distributed to the 25 local agencies that provide ongoing support to families in our community.

If your business would like to participate in the Stars Project by collecting gifts for families please email Melissa or call (831) 427-5070 x128

Drop off your gifts by Sunday, December 16th!

We are still accepting gifts on Monday, December 17th until 6pm at the Donation Warehouse: 703 Front St, Santa Cruz.
