Adoption Guidelines

       Adopting one of our families is a HUGE undertaking, and we could never provide for

so many families without the help of folks like you!!

You can view our families available for adoption by clicking here.

Adopting A Family Means You Provide:

A Christmas Dinner



Stocking Goodies

A Blessing Bag

for the Entire Family!
Parents are also asked for a wish. If you can grant their wish - great, but it’s OK if you can’t!

(Most wish for oil changes, new sheets or gas cards, etc.)


 If you can't adopt a family you can adopt a child or teen.


Adopting A Child Means You Provide:

One to Two Outfits (If you purchase more than 3 we will share with other children)

One to Two new Pajamas, a bag of socks, underwear, new shoes, and coat. (

these are optional but most requested items)

Granting at least one of their Christmas Wishes

Toiletries, candy, lots of fun stuff for their stocking

Adopting A Teen Means You Provide:

A gift card for clothing

A gift basket, shoe box or stocking with toiletries, makeup, bra, panties, etc . 

We ask you to grant one wish or need, and if you like both.


Here are just a few things to think about when shopping for your family.

When shopping for dinner, think of what you love to have at Christmas Dinner. Some things that some of our families have enjoyed are things like Sugar Cookie Kits to make with the kids, or a Gingerbread house kit. Please don’t wrap your gifts, if you like to remove tags that is super helpful. You can however donate wrapping paper or Santa Sacks for the gifts if you like. You can also join us in wrapping gifts on any of our wrapping  days.

We have discovered that some folks get excited and carried away when shopping for their families. So, if you do go a little overboard, we might share some of the bounty with other children who didn't get adopted. Or we can give you another child or family if you like. We will keep your family’s gifts together for your family if you don’t go over the guideline limits.

Again, THANK YOU!!! We are so pleased to help so many families celebrate Christmas!
We have found the easiest way to help a family with Christmas Dinner is to provide a Gift Card for Food City or Kroger or to purchase a precooked meal from either for pick up. We do have a suggested list for Christmas Dinner if you prefer to do that.
