Adopt A Family

Adopt a Family for the Holidays

The holidays can be stressful for families, and the season of giving puts added pressure on caregivers who are just trying to make ends meet. The COVID-19 era has been hard for the families we partner with, many of whom face financial instability exacerbated by the pandemic. By “adopting” a family this holiday season, you can reduce the stress on a family working towards greater stability. Rally your family members, co-workers, and friends to make this year special for our families and yours.

You can take part as an individual, family, or group and provide gifts for an entire family this winter holiday season.

How it works

FamilyWise staff works with families to identify specific wish lists. Once you fill out a Sponsor form, you will receive a wish list for each member of the family, which will give you an idea of what they want or could use. After buying the gifts, you will drop them off at FamilyWise’s main office by a specific date in December. All gifts need to wrapped and labeled upon drop-off.

2021 Adopt A Family Timeline

Adopt A Family recruitment happens in October and November each year.   2021 Adopt A Family registration is now closed.  Don’t worry, if you’d like to support families, you can create your own “item drive.”
