Holiday Giving Program
The Holiday Adoption program provides food including a holiday meal, clothing, hygiene aids, school supplies, and of course toys to the needy families of the City of Jurupa Valley. We join Santa Claus in delivering the items to selected families over several days just prior to Christmas.
Families are chosen only after meeting strict eligibility guidelines. Since its inception, we have supported over 1,300 families and brought holiday cheer to tens of thousands of children.
Families with full adoption - 90
Senior Citizens with full adoption - 400
Number of children who received toys because of our program - Over 8,500
In all, we filled over 2,200 grocery bags with food, cleaning supplies, hygiene items, and other general household necessities. Children in each of the adopted families received school supplies as well. We provided bicycles and helmets to numerous children and were able to fulfill some special needs.
This program would not be successful if it were not for the help of the wonderful community it serves, our family and friends, and each of you who donated time, money, or merchandise.
Thank you for all you have done and we look forward to helping even more children in 2017.
