I am working today to organize our huge donation list for The Christmas Project (we are hoping to help over 40 families!), but before I post everything, I want to extend a special invitation.
If you would like to “adopt” a family completely, meaning you would be solely responsible for one family’s donations, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Family Adoption” in the subject line by tonight at 9 pm (12/8). I will reply to your email with a specific list of what this family needs and you can start going to town. Donations will be due by the end of next week (December 15-ish).
This would be perfect for those looking to make a large impact on one family, or as a service project for your small group, Bible study or extended family. You all could even do it in lieu of adult Christmas gifts for your family. This will be a $200-$300 commitment (or more, if you choose). And you absolutely CANNOT flake out on me. If you adopt a family, I am assuming you are taking care of it.
I especially need people from the following areas to adopt a family as we don’t have the means to organize their gifts as we are doing in the Portland Metro area (we have plenty of families in the Portland Metro area that are up for “adoption” as well). You will be responsible for purchasing/collecting the items and getting them to the family:
- Coos Bay
- Kent (2)
- Ft. Lewis
- Murrieta (Los Angeles area)
In your email, make sure you tell me which family you would like to adopt — either one of the cities above or a family from my Portland Metro list. I will try to reply with your list by Friday evening.
The complete list of individual items needed for our other families will be posted by tomorrow morning (12/9)!
