Adopt A Family:
The Adopt-A-Family Program was designed to help individuals who are in desperate need of financial assistance, hope, and caring during the holiday season.
Families are selected from The Salvation Army Corps Community Centers, hospitals and referral agencies throughout the city of Philadelphia. The common factor shared by all adopted families is their strong need for special care and extra assistance during Christmas. Families who are chosen to participate in this program have experienced the following crises during the past few months: death or extreme illness in the family, fire, recent incarceration of a parent, women leaving abusive situations to mention a few.
Each family is matched with one sponsor who will purchase gifts for each family member including adults. The family profile listseach family member’s first name, age, gender, and gift ideas. Families pick up their gifts a week before Christmas and leave the sponsors a personal “Thank You” note from their adopted family. This program is limited to 150 families.
(**We ask sponsors to spend a minimum of $100 per person in the family.)
Families will be distributed to donors prior to Thanksgiving and are due back on Wednesday 12/12 or Thursday 12/13 between 9AM-6:00PM
