Shopping Tips


  • The family profile provides you with the specific requests of the family. To access your family's profile, 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.


  • Place all items in sturdy boxes with lids (or flaps) 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').

  • If you are providing gift cards please place the gift cards in an envelope clearly labeled with the family code and give it to the staff member who receives your donation at the drop off location. The staff member will ensure that the envelope is stored securely until the family receives the gifts.

Food (optional)

  • All of our families appreciate help with providing nutritious meals. You can help by purchasing grocery gift cards available at all major grocery stores. The family‚Äôs local supermarket preference is listed in the profile.

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