2020 Holiday Adoption
Holiday Adoption Guidelines
Welcome to Community LINC’s Annual Holiday Adoption program.
Each year, we pair families who are overcoming homelessness, with kind donors, to provide for their needs for the Holiday Season. For these families, the added expense of buying gifts for their children is more than they can afford. For most, this causes more stress than joy.
By adopting these families, your generosity frees them from this stress! It also provides them and their children with the joys normally associated with this time of year.
• We recruit donors to commit to providing for a small (2-3 people), medium (4-5 people) or large (5 or more people) family. It is also possible to commit to provide for multiple families if you so choose.
• Simultaneously, we obtain a family wish list from each family in our program.
• As soon as we have a list of donors and family wish lists, we begin the pairing process. Pairing is done on a first come first serve basis. As soon as we have a wish list in hand, we share it with the donor.
• We ask that donors plan to spend between $50 and $100 per family member. In the interest of balance, please don’t spend more than $100 per family member.
This year, we ask that donors bring the gifts, pre-wrapped and labeled back to Community LINC by December 21st at noon. Gifts will then be distributed by our staff at a COVID regulations compliant event that evening.
