The Retreat’s Adopt-a-Family program is open and ready for donations for the 2022 holiday season. This beloved community program collects holiday gifts and gift cards for families in need. This year, it will run through December 12.
The Retreat, a not-for-profit agency that provides domestic violence services, established Adopt-a-Family nearly 20 years ago when its employees in advocacy recognized a need in their clients. They collected and distributed one gift each for their clients’ children, serving about 20 families in total. Now, this holiday giving program provides for 200 families, more than 450 individuals, all of whom are current Retreat clients.
When donors support this program, they are making a family’s holiday brighter. Every gift is greatly appreciated, and providing gift cards or cash gives the added gift of independence. Clients are able to make the decision of what toys, games, and clothing to purchase for their families–something that many of them were unable to do for so long.
