Adopt a Family 2020

Adopt-A-Family Gifts Delivered!

Thank you to all the Donors who participated in our Adopt-A-Family program. Through our partnerships with West Side nonprofits, service agencies and churches, you have provided holiday gifts to families who are experiencing hardship. Most of the families who participate live at or below the poverty line and some experience homelessness.

Together, the 193 Adopt-A-Family Donors who participated were able to accomplish the following:

  • Adopt 255 families
  • Purchase gifts for 925 children and adults
  • Purchase 250 food boxes for 240 families

Although all the families have been adopted, you can still support families

Donate and support our families with a food box. Every adopted family will also receive a box of food from Top Box Foods. With your monetary support, we can add additional meals to the food box. Being able to add food items to the box to extend a family's food security is an incredibly important and wonderful way to help us continue to make an impact in the neighborhoods we serve.

Use the button below to donate / extend our Top Box efforts and help vulnerable and food insecure families.
