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
