Help Families for the Holidays with Gifts, Food
CAC’s Holiday Program is designed to give an extra bit of help during the Holiday season to local families who have come to CAC during the past year for assistance. Many times families who are struggling to get by do not have extra income for holiday gifts or celebrations. Through the generosity of donors, CAC provides families and individuals in need the means to celebrate the season. CAC’s holiday program is completely donor dependent, providing holiday food to about 500 families and gifts to about 1,200 children.
You can make a child’s holiday season a little happier! Give holiday gifts to children of local families in need through CAC’s Adopt-a-Family program. View family stories and children’s wish lists on our website beginning in late October. Select the family you want to give gifts to and register to “adopt” online. Donors are asked to spend about $65 per child. Bring your new and unwrapped gifts to CAC’s gift distribution site. Gifts will be distributed to families in mid-December.
For donors interested in adopting more than 10 children, please contact us at email@example.com and we will provide you with a list of families so that families remain on the website for individual donors. We will email the family information and child wish lists to you. If needed, CAC can also support your group with an angel tree system.
Please check our Adopt-a-Family web page in late October for families and children available for “adoption.”
Give Holiday Food Gift Cards
Grocery store gifts cards give families the gift of choice for their holiday celebrations! Please give Publix & Kroger gift cards in denominations of $10, $20 and $30. $10 Helps an Individual – $20 Helps a Couple – $30 Helps a Family.
Bring cards to CAC or donate online and designate your contribution to “food.”
