Join WOA members in adopting a needy family this Holiday Season through Adopt-a-Family

Adopt-a-Family provides families in-need with a Holiday they cannot afford for themselves. Low-income families are matched with generous donors who “adopt” families by promising to purchase items off their adopted families' wish list. Gifts range from clothes, hygiene products, appliances, linens, gift cards and more.

WOA has adopted several families and you can adopt individual family members or provide a grocery gift card for a Holiday meal.  To adopt follow the steps below.

 

Sign-up by November 1st. Deliver Gifts by November 15th.

Steps to Sign- up and donate an item(s) for a family

We are working together with our local community in support of over 300 inner city families from local non-profit organizations, ranging in size of 3-12 members.  All in all, that’s about 1,200 people to adopt.
