What We Do:
Adopt-A-Family matches donors with over 2000 needy Woonsocket children to provide gifts of clothing and toys during the Christmas season. We make an effort to focus on the "working poor."
How It Works:
- Low income parents apply to our program and fill out a wish list each child
- Individuals or groups sign up to become donors, indicating the number of children they would like to “adopt” for the season
- Adopt-A-Family anonymously matches donors with recipients
- Donors shop for each child, purchasing 3-4 new clothing items, as well as 2-3 new toys
- In early December, donors drop wrapped gifts to our Distribution Center, which in turn are picked up by recipient families
