How Can I Donate?
In recent years we have seen a greater need during the Christmas season as more and more people are experiencing difficult times.
You can help us greatly by simply sending a financial contribution. We receive no government money and rely on the generosity of individuals in order to do our work. Every single person at Adopt A Family is a volunteer. We do not have a permanent location. Each Christmas Season we open in a different donated warehouse. We work very hard to keep our administrative costs at an absolute minimum. We do not use any professional fundraisers and you can be sure that your gift goes directly to help us help others.
Click on the "Donate" button and you'll be taken to a secure website to complete your on-line donation. If you prefer to send your donation via post, please use the form below to mail us your tax exempt donation. Also, please don’t forget to check and see if your employer participates in a matching gift program or consider making a bequest.
What are some other ways to help?
Parties: For your child’s birthday or other banner celebration, consider selecting a particular theme (books, athletic equipment, arts and crafts, etc.) and on the invitations make it clear that the gift will be donated to children in need. While we are “open” only during November and December each year, we would be happy to pick up the gifts throughout the year and store them until Christmas.
If you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or other distinctive event, consider using your special occasion to help others. In lieu of gifts, you might suggest that a donation be made to Adopt A Family in your name.
Office or Organizations: If you are having a Christmas Open House, an Office or Association Holiday Party, or another kind of gathering, consider asking your guests to bring a new toy to give to a child in need.
Consider hosting an Adopt A Family Baby Shower as we are always in need of bottles, diapers and similar items for infants.
Some groups support us by sewing, knitting or crocheting toys, sweaters, hats and blankets throughout the year. These are items we use in large quantities. Other groups make jewelry or other gifts for older children.
There are so many ways that you can help us. Any gift or donation, no matter how small, can make a difference. Please help us to make Christmas brighter for a child who may otherwise have nothing to open on Christmas morning. See actual examples.
