Families, classrooms, churches, businesses, and other groups adopt registered families or seniors who benefit from a helping hand during the holidays. Participants are selected by Neighborhood Connection staff, and the number of families selected each year depends on the number of donors who register. Once matched with a client family, the donor group purchases items from their adopted family’s lists, wraps the items, and then brings them to Neighborhood Connection for distribution before Christmas. Donors and client families remain anonymous.
