DPSS KICKS OFF THE SEASON OF GIVING
The Department of Public Social Services (DPSS) Toy Loan and Volunteer Services Program is gearing up to host the annual Adopt-A-Family Program, the much-anticipated holiday campaign to bring joy to over 1,000 low-income families receiving DPSS benefits and services.
The call is once again going out to encourage individuals and organizations to help make a difference in the community by supporting this worthwhile program. Sponsoring a family is a wonderful way to celebrate the true spirit of giving.
For over 30 years, the Adopt-A-Family Program has partnered with the community and generously sponsored families needing support during the holidays. Last year, the program provided gifts of clothing, toys, food, and other new items to approximately 1,800 families.
Sponsors may choose the size of the family, general location, and how many families they would like to sponsor. There is no limit to the number of families. Once matched with a family, the sponsor reviews the family’s wish list and decides what and how much to give.
Individuals or organizations interested in adopting a family may fill out an online sponsor application at https://bit.ly/DPSSAAF. The deadline to submit applications is Friday, December 9, 2022.
