The Dallas Adopt a Family Committee would like to thank you for supporting us and taking the time to give back to our Dallas community. In 2017 over 200 families and 12 youth were adopted totaling more than 1,000 individuals, including 622 children.
The holidays are just around the corner and we know our community needs will be high this year. If you are able, we are asking for your help to adopt a local family by providing food for a Christmas meal and gifts for each child in the home. If you are unable to shop, but would still like to adopt a family, monetary donations are welcome. We have volunteers that will take care of the shopping and wrapping for you.
In November, we will be registering families in need of assistance. As families register they will be matched with our generous donors. Donors can expect to receive their adoption packet no later than the first week of December.
If you are interested in adopting a family, please complete the online donor registration form at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DAAFHelp and return it to the Dallas Resource Center (182 SW Academy St. Suite 220). Donor registration must be completed and received no later than Thursday, November 29th at 5pm.
With your help, we can make this a wonderful Christmas for the families in our community.
