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 1,400 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 $70 per child. Bring your new and unwrapped gifts to CAC’s gift distribution site between December 2 and December 14 at the latest. Donors are asked to bring their gifts as soon as possible as we are distributing gifts for more than 1,400 children in mid-December. More information and instructions are provided upon “adopting” a family online.
For donors interested in adopting more than 10 children, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with a list of families so that families are available 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.
If you don’t see any families for adoption on our website please check back. Families are often adopted quickly. We are adding more families every day as more families enroll.
