Holiday Book and Toy Drive - Adopt a Family

The pandemic left a lasting hardship for many families and the ongoing financial strain caused by inflation has only made matters worse. This holiday season, Child Care Resource Center is asking for your help to ensure local children and families have a reason to smile.


This is the second year of our Adopt a Family initiative, which allows generous donors like you to directly support those in need with a book, toy, and a family game. A woman who was “adopted” last year with her children says the experience provided hope.

“My partner did lose his job and he was the only one working and it was hard for him to find another job,” says Melinda, a mother of two. “It helped with making a meal for the holidays or dinner, it helped a lot. It’s kind of like the feeling of winning the lottery, like oh they picked us? We did feel blessed and grateful for someone wanting to help us and provide gifts for the kids.”


Donation levels to adopt a family are as follows:

$25 for a family with 1 child

$50 for a family with 2 children

$75 for a family with 3 children


Each adopted family is actively involved in a CCRC program. All donations are appreciated and help us further our goal of helping more children experience a holiday that’s merry and bright.
