"...at the heart of helping."

Adopt A Family LogoAdopt-A-Family

The Volunteer Center’s Adopt-A-Family program connects families in need with donors from the community who "adopt" the family during the holiday season. Families are treated to gifts and food through the generosity of adopters. Adopters can specify any size family/families and are given "wish lists" to help with shopping. Donors can also meet the family if they so desire. It's a feel good experience for both parties!
