Adopt-a-family

Give tidings of comfort and joy to families this holiday season!

Overview You have the power to give families hope

Once again, Christmas comes to our city through the spirit and kindness of the people in our community. This year, you can support families who otherwise would not have a holiday through Catholic Family Center's Adopt-a-Family program.

Thank you for thinking of CFC and the families we serve, particularly during this season of giving and sharing.

Instructions for adopting a family

Thank you for selecting a family, or families, from the following form. We have added the address of each family's case manager location at CFC; this is the address where you should plan to drop off your gifts. With many heartfelt thanks, we'll take it from there!

Please plan to deliver gifts as detailed in your confirmation email, usually between December 10th and December 14th, Mon-Fri during business hours. PLEASE NOTE: December 14th is a hard deadline, so we can get your gifts to families in time for the holidays. If you are unable to meet this deadline, please contact our program manager, Claudia Gill, CGill@cfcrochester.org, to make alternate arrangements.

A word about the gifts and gift-wrapping

Thank you so much for your generosity! Adults, 18 and up, may ask for their choice of a $25 gift card. Children may ask for up to $100 in gifts. (Some may go a little crazy with the whole idea of a wishlist, but you are not expected to provide everything they request.)

Our elves request you do not wrap your gifts, but they must be labeled with your family’s ID code (which will be provided in your confirmation email) and bagged or boxed together. Because of stricter privacy laws, we are unable to provide recipient names, just gender and age.

Thank you again for being part of the Adopt a Family project. You thoughtfulness is a wonderful gift to these families, assuring them that someone cares about them this holiday season.
