Christmas Adopt-a-Family Program Seeks Sponsors

October 19, 2017

Campus Ministries' Center for Service & Justice has partnered with The Catherine McAuley Center this year to help with their Adopt-a-Family program. The Catherine McAuley Center's Adopt-A-Family Program matches local individuals and organizations with families in need in Northeastern Pennsylvania during the Christmas holiday season. Many of these families do not have enough money to meet basic needs, let alone purchase gifts.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Adopt-A-Family Program has delivered presents and joy to approximately 2,000 individuals each year. 

Those interested in participating will be given a Wish List, which will include suggested gift ideas for the adopted family members. The cost for each family will be about $50. You may choose to take one member or more, whichever you prefer. The donor will then purchase gifts for the family members, place their gifts in gift bags and tag all presents with the family members name and assigned number, and the CSSJ office will deliver them to the Catherine McAuley Center.

Gifts are due to our office by Thursday, Dec. 8. Please contact me if you are interested in participating, and include the number of family members you wish to sponsor.
