The holidays find us busy with the excitement of preparing our homes and hearts for family gatherings and gift-giving. This magical time of year creates an opportunity to reflect on all that we have to be thankful for while being surrounded by those dearest to us. However, some find these celebrations cause for worry as they may not have the resources to give their children or elderly parents a homemade holiday meal at Thanksgiving or small gifts at Christmas. Along with your support, the City of Scottsdale, and the Vista del Camino Food Bank, we can provide help for low-income families in Scottsdale with the Adopt A Family program.
Adopt A Family in Scottsdale for the Holidays
Our Adopt A Family seasonal program welcomes all individuals, families, and organizations to take part in this charitable and meaningful event.
We match anyone who wishes to participate with a local, pre-screened, Scottsdale family that has come to us for assistance. Donors are then given basic information about their adopted family along with a wish list and instructions on how to proceed with drop-off of the items once collected.
Donation Items Needed
Items such as new clothes, new toys, movie passes, blankets, toiletries, slippers, gift cards to stores such as Wal-Mart or Target, and books are typically requested, but each family’s wish list is different from the next. If adopting a family just for Thanksgiving, food items such as a turkey, a roasting pan, canned vegetables and a grocery store gift card are the items most needed. All donations are tax-deductible through Scottsdale Community Partners and are greatly appreciated.
Adopt A Family Donations
Giving parties have the option to donate for both Thanksgiving and Christmas or just one holiday or to simply make a monetary donation and we will handle the rest. Adopt A Family is a wonderful opportunity for caring individuals, families and organizations to spread good cheer by making the holiday season bright for families in need.
