Community Missions Adopt-A-Family Program

The Gift of Giving ... The Joy of Receiving


This holiday season, more than 120 families have provided a wish list of presents for their children. Will you help them to have a memorable Christmas morning?

Thank you for considering becoming a sponsor. Your generosity will allow a family in need to have a very special holiday. Below are guidelines to assist you as you begin to purchase gifts for your family(s).

1.    Each individual gift must be labeled with the child’s name and family number. It is very important that the family number appear on all gifts.

2.     All gifts must be placed in one or more bags, tied closed, and labeled with the family number.

3.    So that we may catalog and organize all donations, we are asking that sponsors deliver all gifts to Community Missions no later than December 9th. Staff cannot deliver or pick up any gifts unless a request has been made and approved in advance. We are implementing this new measure in order to avoid misplaced gifts.

4.    In addition to gifts for the children, we do ask that a $20-25 grocery gift card be included for the parent (s). Please place gift cards in a separate envelope, outside of gift bag labeled with your family number.

5.    Sponsors are asked to spend what they feel comfortable with and are not expected to purchase every item on the family’s wish list.

Thank You for your consideration!
