"Adopt a Family" Holiday Gift Donor Registration 2022

  1. "Adopt a Family" Holiday Gift Donor Registration 2022
  2. Thank you for your request to adopt a family.

    Thank you for your request to adopt a family! 

    Families are nominated on behalf of recognized domestic agencies in the Hamden area for their own special reasons. Some families may be struggling to meet/acquire monthly expenses or common household items while others might be facing an extraordinarily challenging time.

    By agreeing to adopt a family, you are making a commitment to provide the family with enough gifts for them to create a meaningful Holiday / Christmas experience. We do not set a minimum expectation as to what you can, or are willing to, provide for the family but we ask that when buying for families with multiple children - please keep gifts equal. The Wish List families provide is meant as a gift buying guide.

    Adopt a Family Participation Guidelines: 

    • Adopt a family kicks off Monday, September 26, 2022.
    • All donations are due by Wednesday, December 14, 2022.
    • Toys can be dropped off at 11 Pine Street in Hamden or you can call to make arrangements for AnneMarie Karavas to meet you. You are welcome to coordinate an earlier drop off. Gifts must be wrapped and labeled clearly. If you are purchasing clothes please include a gift receipt for size exchange. 
    • You are welcome to include a Holiday Card to wish the parents/guardian a happy holiday or you may remain anonymous.
