Adopt-a-Family

Shopping Tips

Gifts

  • The client profile provides you with specific needs of the family. To access your family's client profiles, go to your account page, where you'll find a link to your adopted family.

  • Please provide at least one fun and one practical gift for each family member.

  • Wrap and tag each gift.

Drop Off and Delivery

  • Dates and directions are available here on the website.

  • Gifts must be dropped off at the location associated with the family (i.e. Richmond family, Richmond drop off).

  • Please bring your adopted family profile form and the in-kind donor receipt form found here, filled out, to the drop-off site.

Packaging

  • Place all items in sturdy boxes with lids and tape securely to close.

  • Maximum weight for boxes is 30 lbs.

  • Boldly write the Family Code Number (found on the Family Profile) on all 4 sides and the top of each box.

  • Label each box with its number (i.e. '1 of 3', '2 of 3', '3 of 3').

Food (optional)

  • If desired, provide for a nice holiday meal (or more) by purchasing grocery gift certificates available at all major grocery stores.

  • We welcome canned food and other non-perishables if boxed securely with no box weighing over 30 lbs.
