2022 Adopt-a-Family Program

September 23, 2022

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. We are excited for the season ahead and look forward to helping families in our community enjoy a magical Christmas together!

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. United Way will then match sponsors with a family the size of their choosing and will be given the wish list from their adopted family. The 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 must be wrapped and dropped off to the United Way GCR office, then families will be notified of the date and time to pick up their gifts. Gifts will not be delivered to families.
