Adopt a Family 2021

 

ABOUT ADOPT A FAMILY

When can I sign up to adopt a family? 

We are so pleased to report that at this time we have adopted every family participating in this program. However, we often have neighbors or new clients reaching out throughout December. If you might be able to assist and would like to placed on a wait-list, please email cmartines@thefamilytree.org.

We are still in need of additional drive items, if you'd like to learn more please fill out this form.

When will I hear back about my adopted family or individual(s)?

As soon as possible, we appreciate your patience as we work with families to gather their needs for the holidays and share them back with you. You will hear directly from a program liaison, if you have not received your wish list by 12/1/21 please contact cmartines@thefamilytree.org

How much should I spend?

We ask that donors allocate $75 per person that they would like to adopt and an additional $75 per household. During the sign up process you are able to indicate the size of family you would like to adopt based on this request. We ask that all items be new and not reused.

Can I give gift cards?

Yes! During the holiday season families appreciate gift cards as a way to shop on their own, and also for age groups like teens and young adults.

Should I wrap my gifts?

We ask that donors provide gift wrapping supplies with their gifts but do not wrap them. Parents enjoy being able to know what children will be opening.

How do I drop off my gifts? 

Please use this sign up link to find a time to drop off your gifts. We ask that you please label each item with your family's identifying number that we will provide when your the family wish list is sent. Gifts received past the final drop-off date will be re-allocated within our programs according to need.
