Angel Tree Adopt-A-Family

Adopt-A-Family is our program for allowing you to directly support a family that signed up for Christmas Assistance. This program does not just give gifts to the children in the family. We ask that you give a family gift for the entire family to enjoy. On top of that, we ask that you help out by providing a Christmas dinner. We want to make sure that families in need are taken care of, and this is one way you can help. We would love for you, our donors, to adopt every family that signs up for assistance, so everyone has a good Christmas. If you are able to do that, then fill out the form below and we will get back to you as soon as possible. If you aren't able to help out with Adopt-A-Family, then still do consider helping us out by donating a toy or two at one of our many Angel Tree locations. Any kind of help goes a long way. If you have any question about Adopt-A-Family, please call 775-688-4555, or email us at
