Christmas Adopt-A-Family Program

Two hundred families, out of 217 applied, were adopted for Christmas 2016.  Thanks  to our genereous adopters and dedicated volunteers who made this possible.  We cannot do this without you.

 
Program: 
Help provide a family in need with a Holiday dinner (or a grocery gift card) and each child with a gift, plus shoes or clothing.  Families are available to be adopted starting in October.
 
To Apply:
Current clients of Fallbrook Food Pantry can apply to be adopted by filling out an Adopt-a-Family Application at the Pantry from September 1st - October 14th.

The clients at the Fallbrook Food Pantry are beginning to think about how they will provide Christmas cheer for their families this year.  When the total income to provide for a family is at or below the national poverty level, holidays can be especially stressful.

That’s why we invite YOU to lend a helping hand at this special time.  We are looking for groups or individuals who have sufficient resources and are willing to share with the less fortunate in our community.  We would like to pair you up with a family in need and ask that you provide the ingredients for a holiday meal as well as a gift and shoes, or clothing, for each child.

You will be given the names, address, phone number and the number and gender of children in a family.  Please contact your family as soon as possible to let them know that you have adopted them for Christmas and to confirm that they will be at home when you plan to make your delivery.  If you are given the name of a family without a telephone or if you are unable to communicate with your family because of a language barrier, please call us at the Pantry and we will assist you.

We would like to hear from you by December 15th in order to be certain that all families in need are adopted and to better help you meet your needs in choosing the appropriate size family.  If you have any other questions regarding our Adopt a Family Program at the Fallbrook Food Pantry, please call us at 728-7608 Monday through Friday 9:30 to 12:30, or leave a message at the number and we will get back to you.

Thank you and may God bless.
