We Need Your Help
We have clients at DVIS who are unable to provide clothing and toys for their families this holiday season. We are asking families, local businesses, and community groups to “adopt” one or more of these families to provide them with the items they need so they may have a happy holiday season.
How It Works
You may choose to adopt a small, medium, or large-sized family. If you are unable to adopt a family, please consider donating a gift card to purchase gifts for a family.
You should receive the family’s wish list at the end of November, after all families have been matched. Wish lists include sizes, preferences and any special needs. Please wrap all gifts and label by first name. Wrapped gifts should be dropped off at the DVIS office between 9 am – 4:30 pm, Dec. 5-9.
Please be sure when you purchase items on the wish list that children’s gifts are your priority. The average cost to buy for a small family is $250. You are welcome to purchase gifts for the parent as well. We ask that you purchase new clothing and toys only. No used donations will be accepted.
The deadline for the 2016 Adopt-a-Family program is Monday, October 31, 2016. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
