WHAT IS THE SALVATION ARMY ADOPT-A-FAMILY PROGRAM?

Along with the Angel Tree Program, the Adopt-A-Family was created to address the needs of low-income families during the holidays and times of need.  Each year the Salvation Army in St. Louis receives hundreds of applications for assistance for the Adopt-A-Family program. The families who qualify for the Adopt-A-Family program are facing significant financial hardships and are often unable to afford a Christmas dinner, new toys and warm clothing for their children.  Some are single parent families with very low income and some are of large families where a parent has been laid off from their job, have major medical expenses or facing some other significant challenge.

HOW YOU CAN HELP?

The Salvation Army’s Adopt a Family program is very rewarding and heart-warming way to help some of the neediest families in our community.  Its goal is to partner with businesses, organizations, and individuals who will adopt families who demonstrate extreme and/or unique needs during the Christmas season.  By participating in the Adopt-A-Family program, you can help with the needs of an entire family.  You can adopt a small family, a large family or multiple families.  The Salvation Army will provide the ages, sizes and wish list of each child.  This is a perfect holiday project and works for any budget.

HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS:

Adopt –A-Family sponsors complete a simple form, specifying the size of family that they would like to adopt. Donors will then receive a small summary of the family’s current situation, a list of all members of the household, clothing sizes for all the children in the home, as well as  a small wish list for each child. Donors are not expected to purchase every item on the list. Minimum for adopting a family is an outfit per child, one toy per child, and a grocery gift card for the family.
