Adopt-A-Family

 

For families who are unable to afford even the basic necessities, especially during a pandemic, purchasing gifts for their children can be difficult or impossible. That’s the experience of families in Avivo’s programs. You can help! Join our Adopt-A-Family holiday gift program, with a goal of helping 500 families have a happy, holiday season.

New this year: Holiday Gift Boxes! Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we’re making some changes this year to keep donors, staff, and those we serve healthy and safe.

We’re moving away from matching specific family members with donors, and instead focusing on more general gifts that will be part of a Holiday Gift Box. There are different types of gift boxes to choose from, and you’ll have the option to include some of your favorite gifts to add your own personal touch.

“One of our kids said, ‘This is the best Christmas ever!’”

Here’s how it works:

  • Email Rebecca Bedner-Faris for more information and a link to our online registration
  • You (or your company) register to buy a Holiday Gift Box for one family or multiple families. You’ll have the option to choose the number and type of Holiday Gift Boxes, as well as drop-off locations that work best for you.
  • Once you’re registered, Rebecca will reach out to you to confirm your registration and drop-off location.
  • Gifts can be dropped off December 7-11, during business hours, at one of our Avivo locations.

If you are unable to sponsor a family, you may also make a financial contribution and support our work on behalf of families that way. You may make a gift online or email Rebecca Bedner-Faris.
