Christmas is just a few months away, and while we are just hitting the Autumn season, many families in our community may already have worries about the approaching holidays with the cost of goods and food rising over the last year. However, United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region is here to provide hope through the Adopt-a-Family program by relieving families from the stress of trying to make ends meet while having something to look forward to during the holidays.
How it works:
Families who need assistance this holiday season can apply for adoption and will be given the opportunity to list reasonable gift ideas and needs for each family member. Sponsors will then be paired with families the size of their choosing and will be given the lists from their adopted family. Names of families are anonymous to the sponsors, but there is always the option to meet their adopted family as well. Gifts provided by sponsors will be dropped off to the United Way GCR office, then families will be notified of the date and time to pick up their gifts.
Important Dates to Remember:
- October 5, 2022 – Applications for sponsorships and families wanting to be adopted will be available to download or can be picked up at the United Way office at 107 Jefferson St., Suite 107.
- November 4, 2022 – Sponsorship applications due to United Way
- November 14, 2022 – Family applications due to United Way
- December 9, 2022 – Sponsor gifts to families must be wrapped and delivered to the United Way office at 107 Jefferson St., Suite 107.
Please keep an eye on our website and social media for announcements on opening the applications for both sponsorships and for families wanting to be adopted. We are excited for the season ahead and look forward to helping families in our community enjoy a magical Christmas together!
