Adopt-a-Family Holiday Drive
October 30, 2020 to December 6, 2020
Children’s Place Association is committed to bringing life-changing programs to Chicago’s most vulnerable children – those overwhelmed by health issues, poverty and neighborhood violence. helping children and families facing illness and extreme poverty. Our focused model of social services, health care, education and family support lifts children out of poverty, improves their health and puts them on a path to become empowered young adults.
As part of our commitment to the children and youth we serve and to ensure the holidays are bright for everyone, Children’s Place Association coordinates an annual Adopt-a-Family Holiday Drive. Through this program, individuals and families are able to make a direct and joyous impact on children and families experiencing hardship.
For nearly three decades, generous supports have partnered with Children’s Place Association to bring toys, clothing, toiletries, household items and grocery gift cards to brighten the holiday season for those in need. In 2019, 198 families were adopted by our generous supporters – that is 834 individuals of which 500 were children.
“I would like to thank you all so much! It means a lot to me and my family to receive gifts from people that don’t even know us personally. It shows how big of a heart you have. God Bless you all and may your family have a wonderful holiday season!”
–“Jenny”, 2019 Adopt-a-Family recipient
During this unprecedented year, COVID-19 has impacted the way in which our program will run. Our top priority is to ensure that our families, donors, volunteers and staff can participate safely. This year, we will be initiating curbside drop-offs, and all items will be sanitized before being distributed to families.
