Adopt A Family
PROGRAM NOTE: 12/7/17: We have our reached our maximum for the Adopt A Family and Wishing Well Programs and they are now closed.
Below is information on two Sponsor programs that are still available:
Hurricane Maria Holiday Support:
The Salvation Army will assist thousands of needy families with children this holiday season, however, at least another 40 families coming from Puerto Rico have been identified that can use additional support. They have traveled to Philadelphia with no coats or winter gear. The majority of them have moved in with family members who have limited ability to support them. We expect that by the middle of December the number of families from Puerto Rico or the US Virgin Islands that need additional assistance will grow from 40 to at least 70.
The Salvation Army has established a special Holiday support program for Christmas. We are asking donors to help us address their needs.
We are asking for the following for each adopted family:
· Gifts cards of $25 for each family member. The gift cards can be to Target stores (many stores in Philadelphia), Visa, MasterCard, or American Express.
· Winter coats, gloves, hats and scarves for each family member.
· Family gift – box of chocolates, box of meats and cheeses, etc. – value not to exceed $25.
Gifts are due prior to 12/15.
