Santa Shoppe

2023 Recap


Santa Shoppe will be remembered as a highlight of 2023 for everyone at Adopt-A-Family. This cherished tradition is made possible by hundreds of donors and volunteers who ensure the families we serve experience the joy of the holiday season.
A total of 217 children from 98 families attended the event. Each child received a gift off their wish list from Santa, and families enjoyed crafts, face painting, and lunch. The children were paired with a volunteer who helped them select gifts for their family members that were wrapped with love by volunteers in the wrapping room.
We could not pull off this event without the generosity, kindness, and enthusiasm of our community of supporters. Thank you for everything!

HRC Gift Giving Event

2023 Recap


Each year, the Senator Philip D. Lewis Center’s Gift Giving event provides gifts to local families experiencing homelessness.

During the weekend-long initiative, parents visit the HRC to browse hundreds of donated toys and pick out gifts for the whole family. The event was an encouraging opportunity for the Adopt-A-Family team to connect with the families we serve, as staff were on-hand to wrap each gift.
