Adopt-a-Family Program

Thank you so much for your interest in the Adopt-a-Family program for our Love Grows by Giving holiday gift drive this year!  Here’s how it works:

Our clients provide us with a suggested list of items, under $20, that they would like to receive, as well their clothing and shoe sizes. From that list we will provide you with 2-3 gifts ideas for each person.  You choose two gifts, plus one clothing item or pajamas for a total of 3 gifts.  The list will look something like this:

ID#       Gender Age    Clothing Size       1               2                3

12345   Female    8      Girls     7-8       Barbie   Hair clips     Uno

You determine the number of people that you would like to adopt and our office will pair you with the right family/families. Then, shop, shop, shop! Have fun and be creative.

When you have all your items, please put each client’s 3 unwrapped gifts in separate bags that are labeled (inside and outside) with the MainID#, Gender and Age as well as your name, so that we can make sure that they get to the appropriate person. In the case of many of these families, gas and grocery gift cards would also be extremely helpful as they are struggling to pay bills and provide basic necessities due to their domestic violence situations.

Our adopt-a-family drive is set to end on Monday, December 12th, however if we can get items before then we would prefer that. Your gifts can dropped off at the Tinley Park Public Library located on the south-east corner of 80th Ave. & Timber Drive in Tinley Park. When we receive the gifts, we wrap them and distribute them to clients starting Dec. 13th.

Your next step would be to contact Shani Smith at 708-429-7255×126 or and let her know how many people you would like to adopt.  Then, she can send you the gift tags for each person. 

Thank you again for your generosity and partnership.  You are helping families in ways that you can’t even imagine!
