Help families at The Family Place by considering adoption this year!


Here's how Adopt-a-Family works:
• Our program has families that range in size from single clients to parents with up to six children.
 Submit your request and select your family/families online by clicking here!!
• You will shop for each member of the family, as well as provide boxes, wrapping paper, tape and bows to give to the client to wrap the gifts for their children.
• Bring the gifts, labeled with the names of the recipients, to our Holiday Donation Center in a large plastic garbage bag. Tie the bag and tape your Family Code to the outside of the each bag you have.
• The Family Place distributes the gifts to the families.

Shopping Tips:
• When possible, shop at stores that offer gift receipts or where returns are easy without a receipt.
• When purchasing items, request gift boxes if possible. Having boxes helps tremendously with wrapping.

You or your group decide what types of items to shop/give, and bring the gifts to our Holiday Donation Center along with wrapping paper, bows & tape.

We will distribute the gifts to the Shelter where the clients can choose for themselves and their children. The parents will be able to wrap the gifts they choose for their children.
