Sign up to “Adopt-a-Family” this holiday season!

aaf2Every year, the most disadvantaged individuals and families served are nominated by staff for the Holiday Adopt-a-Family program. The individuals and families are then anonymously matched with generous “adopters” who fulfill their wishes for the holiday season and provide them with unimaginable comfort and support.

How Can You Help?

Adopt-a-Family is a large-scale effort requiring a lot of time, work and goodwill! You can play an important part in making this the most successful year ever by volunteering your time and/or organizing a group, your company, faith center or family to participate in the program.

To sign up to adopt, please click here or visit www.interfaithservices.org/holidayadopt and complete the online Adopt-a-Family form. You will then be matched to your family or individual, and provided with detailed information about their holiday wishes and gift drop-off procedures. If you are unable to complete the online application, please call or visit our headquarters to fill out a hard copy form: 550 W. Washington Ave., Escondido, CA — (760) 489-6380.

If you or your group do not wish to shop this year, you can still make a difference by donating to the Holiday Adopt-a-Family program via check or credit card gift. To donate online, click here and select “Holiday Adopt-a-Family” from the drop-down menu. Thank you for your generosity to our most vulnerable community members!
