Astor's Adopt-A-Family Program


Last year, with generous donations of time and money, we helped more than 1,400 children and their families experience the magic of the holidays. COVID-19 has had a tremendous impact on the vulnerable families we serve – many of whom are living at or below the poverty line. This year, more than ever our families need your support to make holiday wishes come true.  

Our number one priority is the safety of our children, families, staff and donors.   For the 2020 Adopt-A-Family program, instead of wrapped gifts, we are requesting monetary donations and gift cards for our families who need your help.  Gift Cards will be sent directly to the participating families so that they can purchase gifts for the holidays.

Thank you for lending your support to make a child’s wish come true — to make the holidays warm and merry for some of our neediest children and families.
