Adopt a Family Program
The Salvation Army’s Adopt a Family programs goal is to partner with businesses, organizations and individuals who will adopt families that demonstrate extreme and / or unique needs during the Christmas season.
Donors must complete the Adopt a Family Contract, specifying the size of family that they would like to adopt. Donors will then receive a small summary of the family’s current situation, a list of all members of the household, clothing sizes for all children in the home, as well as a small wish list for each child. (Donors are not expected to purchase every item on the list. Minimum for adopting a family is an outfit per child, one toy per child and a grocery gift card for the family.)
*We currently have over 900 families to service through Christmas assistance programs. Here are a few that are available for immediate adoption:
