The annual Adopt a Family Holiday Drive helps sprinkle joy for families/individuals affected by domestic violence, currently living in a domestic violence shelter. The Holidays are especially hard for displaced families, but your contribution via this Drive truly sparks a light for them and makes a difference for those that have fled abusive relationships as individuals or with their children in tow. Click HERE to see the joy spread during this Drive.
SPARK A LIGHT FOR FAMILIES EACH HOLIDAY SEASON
Do I have to buy everything on the list?
Absolutely not. Sometimes families/individuals list a great deal of information. You are in no way expected to make excessive or expensive purchases.
Can I donate used items for the Drive?
Although we accept gently used items throughout the year, we do not accept donations of used goods for the holiday season.
Should we wrap the gifts?
We do not require that you wrap gifts. We ask that you deliver your gifts in large trash bags, so we can ensure your items stay together. Just make sure the resident recipient’s name and room number are clearly labeled on all bags.
How should the items be delivered to us for Drive?
Due to the safety of residents and non-disclosure of their location, items should be dropped off at the agency.
Can I just send gift cards?
You are more than welcome to send just gift cards. If you choose to send in gift cards for no family in particular, you can mail them to the domestic violence agency. Please include this letter so it’s directed to the LLN Adopt A Family Drive.
Can’t sponsor a family but still want to help?
Monetary donations of any amount go towards the purchase of supermarket and department store gift cards to help unsponsored families. In the Memo portion of your check, please write Adopt A Family Drive. Checks can be made out to the domestic violence agency being helped that year. Please note that a mother and her children occupy one room at the shelter or you may choose an individual Mom-to-be or woman. Copy and paste the family names and room number in your email response so that we can assign them to you.
