Adopt a Family 2018

2018 Adopt  A Family 

Every day, individuals and parents with children turn to Courage Connection for safety and support.  This holiday season is no different.  The holidays can be a very difficult time for women and their children living within our support services.

“Adopt a Family” you purchase gifts for Courage Connection clients or families who do not have the resources for such luxuries.  Adopt a Family is not just about shopping for gifts, it’s also about giving joy and peace during a difficult time of year. 

Each participant receives a wish list from a family and/or single person.  Wish lists include description of interest, hobbies or needs along with helpful information such as age and gender to make your shopping most efficient. 

To “Adopt” a Family:

  • Please complete the online registration below.    

  • You will receive your “adopted” family’s wish list items by email by Monday, November 20th. Let the guilt free, joy-filled shopping begin!

  • You may purchase as much or as little from the list that you would like. You are not required to purchase every item.

  • Items should be new and gift wrapped. A gift identification sticker will be provided to you.

  • Drop off your gifts on Friday, Dec. 7th at First State Bank, 4-7pm where the holiday spirit will be in full-sparkle! When you drop off your gifts, you will receive a special thank-you gift, and you can enjoy hot cocoa and cookies while talking to our volunteers and board of directors. Alternate drop off times are Dec. 10, 11, and 12, 10am-1pm.


  • Items should be new and gift-wrapped or in a gift bag.

  • You are not required to purchase every item on your wish list. You may purchase as much or as little from the list as you would like.

  • Brighten the holiday season by including your friends, family and children in your Adopt a Family experience. Bring your crew to drop off gifts at First State Bank on Dec. 7th.
