Distribution Week Volunteers Needed
We are one month away from Adopt A Family's biggest week!
500 Families (and counting) have been adopted,
and over 1000 children are going to receive
Christmas presents because of You!
We are accepting Volunteers to help December 11th-14th,
at the Elk's Hall, processing all these gifts
Join us, to meet other wonderful Donors, and truely get into the Holiday Spirit!
Time slots are available in 4 hr increments, Monday- Thursday,
by using the link on our website to Volunteer online through SignUp Genius.
What We Do:
Adopt-A-Family matches Donors with over 2000 Woonsocket children, who's Families are struggling financially, to provide gifts of clothing and toys during the Christmas Season.
AAF makes an effort to focus on the "Working Poor."
How It Works:
- Parents, of Low Income Households, apply to Our program and fill out a Wish List for 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 December, during Distribution Week, Donors drop wrapped gifts to our Distribution Center, which, in turn, are picked up by Recipient Families
