Adopt A Family – Sponsor

Adopting a Family

By adopting a family, you help give a family the joy of Christmas; knowing they’re loved. You are also helping take the fear and stress away if they are going to be able to give their children presents or not. Removing the ultimatum of buying gifts instead of food, clothes, and shelter.

To Adopt a Family

Fill out the form below, pick up a form at the Information Station, or stop by the parish office.

Program Guidelines – You can request what size of a family you wish to shop for. We ask that you purchase a minimum of 1 large and 1 small gift for each person in the family. For the sake of fairness to all recipients, please try to keep the value of the large gift around $35, and the small gift around $15. Our recipients love to receive treats and other stocking stuffers as well.

If you would like to purchase additional gifts, please consider adopting another family.

All gifts need to be wrapped with tags indicating who they are for. When shopping for families with children, please indicate on the list you are given, what you purchased, so that the parents know ahead of time.

Simple Steps to adopt a family:

  1. Fill out the form below by November 24st.
  2. We will send you your “Adopted” family wish list by November 25.
  3. Purchase your gifts and drop off at St. Patrick on December 13th and 14th between 8:30am and 7pm. All gifts should be wrapped and tagged and combined in a heavy duty black plastic garbage bag with the family number on the outside of the bag. If you have multiple bags, label all of them with the family number.
