Adopt-a-Family

 

The Adopt-a-Family program provides gifts and material assistance to low-income families in our community for Easter, Back-to-School, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

Through partnership with neighboring businesses and the parish’s generosity, this program has provided thousands of gifts to hundreds of families over the past several  years. These families received clothing, household items, furniture, toys and food.

Volunteers are needed to help contact families (English and bilingual Eng./Span. speakers), help collect donations, and help support each event in various ways. No long-term commitment is needed. You may participate in any or all of the above events.

Call for Christmas Program Sponsors: This program is successful through the immense support of neighboring businesses. If your work place is interested in giving back to those in need, please consider serving as a sponsor of one or more families.
