Big Brothers Big Sisters Adopt-A-Family Holiday Giving Program

Save to Favorites

Recruiting Organization: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washtenaw County

The Adopt-A-Family program has brightened the holidays for thousands of local families for over twenty years. Last year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washtenaw County partnered with more than 58 businesses and individuals to provide 54 families with a memorable Holiday Season! Our ability to provide this opportunity for families and to maintain its success is due to the continued support and generosity of individuals like you, who have donated food, personal care items, new clothes, games, and toys to our families, who might not otherwise have gifts to open!

There are a few ways you can help!

Helping Baskets: You can donate a basket or multiple baskets of practical household items, such as cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, dish soap, toothpaste, toilet paper, shampoo, etc., that we will deliver to our families. These are items that many families often go without during the Holiday Season. We suggest and encourage that items are donated in a sturdy laundry basket for easier and safer delivery. These gifts aren't specific to a family, they will be general donations distributed to several families.

Gift Cards: Many families will benefit from gift cards to buy food, toys, gas, and household items of their own. The most useful gift cards are from Kroger, Walmart, Meijer, Target, Speedway, etc.

Monetary Donations: Monetary donations are always welcome. BBBS will use the donations to "fill in the gaps" for any family that may be lacking needed items from their wish lists that were not provided by the donor, or to buy more gifts and household items to be able to support more families. Donations are also used for "emergency" wish lists for families that are suddenly facing hardships during the Holiday Season. This can be through an online donation, cash, or check.

We hope that you will join us in making the Holidays a little brighter for the children and families that we serve. Thank you so much!
