Every year CAC connects families in need with "adopters" that spread holiday cheer. Qualified families register their children and generous donors “adopt” families for holiday gifts.

This year, due to Covid-19, we're doing things a bit differently. CAC will not be collecting and distributing gifts, but rather asking adopters to make donations for gift cards. CAC will purchase the gift cards and distribute them to the adopted families in a safe manner. After selecting a family to adopt, donors will be directed through CAC’s secure online donation system.

To begin, please let us know who you are:

Cada año, CAC conecta a las familias necesitadas con "adoptantes" que transmiten alegría navideña. Las familias pueden registrar a sus hijos en nuestra pagina web. A medida que se acercan las fiestas navideñas, las personas pueden “adoptar" una familia para comprar regalos navideños para los niños.

Este año, debido a Covid-19, estamos haciendo las cosas un poco diferente. No vamos a recolectar ni distribuir regalos, lo que vamos a hacer es pedirle a los adoptantes que realicen donaciones en línea para obtener tarjetas de regalo. Luego distribuiremos esas tarjetas de regalo a las familias adoptadas de manera segura.

Para comenzar, háganos saber quién es usted:

Did you know?

In 2019 donors provided holiday gifts to 1,340 children from 550 families!

Changes to Adopt-a-Family for 2021

The Adopt-a-Family program was revised this year for the safety of all involved; donors, clients and volunteers. It’s a labor intensive program to manage; the intake, organization and distribution of the gifts requires a lot of contact among people. The revised program is an effort to minimize contact and exposure among all CAC constituents.
