    Adopt a Family for Christmas

    I decided to adopt a family this Christmas through the Salvation Army in Olathe. I haven’t received any details about them back yet, but anyone here is welcome to help out once I find out who they are.


    You can also can adopt your own family here (Olathe or other KC locations).

    A little more info.

    Again, as a guideline we suggest planning to spend $20-25 per person on holiday gifts in addition to a holiday meal for the family in the form of a grocery gift certificate. We will make every attempt to contact you by phone or email to match you with a family within two working days. After we’ve connected, you can expect to receive an information packet in the mail or by fax within 5 to 7 working days. The packet will include information about your family including sexes, ages, sizes and gift suggestions along with agency guidelines. If you do not receive a follow up call or packet within the specified time, please contact:

    Gift Delivery Dates: December 14 & 15; 11 am - 8 pm

    That's a generous and thoughtful thing to do? Goes to show the type of person you are. I know that family will truly appreciate your kindness.

    Ingenious way to melt the heart and pick up chicks

    In all honesty, that is a great thing to do for the holidays. We have Kailey, our 9 year old pick out gifts for less fortunate kids.

    BC,
    This adoption DOES NOT mean that you get to go to THIER house in order to drink THIER beer and eat THIER food!

    Seriously, though, that is a nice thing to do.

    Nice job BC.

    For others feeling generous, ask your local elementary school principle, nurse, or guidence counselor if they have a "slush fund" or program for needy kids that may not have good enough winter coats, hats, etc. Or if you have kids, donate some old coats they've outgrown.

    My family has been doing this for 5 yrs. we decided that would be more about the holiday than just giving each other stuff we didnt need. We usually adopt 3-4 families with young kids. It is worth it to see their faces when we deliver the gifts. We go through local churches to get the names.
    Whats next?
