Adopt-a-Family Holiday Program

Nov 25, 2018


Welcome to the Adopt-a-Family Holiday Program by Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank, your chance to make a lasting impact on families in need during the holiday season. Our mission is to spread joy, happiness, and support to the vulnerable members of our community who require a helping hand.

How the Program Works

The Adopt-a-Family Holiday Program aims to connect caring individuals, organizations, and businesses with families who are facing financial difficulties. By participating, you can provide these families with invaluable support and assistance during the holiday season.

Step 1: Registration

To get started, you need to register as a participant in the program. Simply fill out our online form, providing us with your contact information and any preferences you may have regarding the family you wish to support. We do our best to match families and sponsors based on specific needs and preferences.

Step 2: Family Matching

Once registration is complete, our team carefully reviews the applications from both sponsors and families. We take into account various factors, including family size, specific needs, and location, to find the most suitable match for each sponsor.

Step 3: Sponsorship

After the matching process, sponsors are notified about the family they will be supporting. Each sponsor receives detailed information about the family's preferences, ages of children, and any specific holiday wishes they may have shared. Sponsors are encouraged to provide gifts, clothing, and essential items to ensure the family has a memorable and joyful holiday season.

Step 4: Delivery

When the donation period comes to an end, arrangements are made for the safe and secure delivery of the sponsored items to the families. This can be done either anonymously or with the sponsor's participation, based on their preference. We prioritize the privacy and dignity of all parties involved in the program.

Why Participate?

The Adopt-a-Family Holiday Program is not just about material assistance; it's about bringing hope, happiness, and a sense of belonging to families who are struggling during the holiday season. By participating in this program, you will:
