Astor’s Adopt-A-Family Program matches children and families in need with volunteers who are able to purchase gifts. With generous donations of time and money, we helped over 1,400 individuals (children in our programs and their family members) during the 2017 Holiday Season and hope to do so again this year.
We ask you to lend your support to make their wishes come true — to make the holidays warm and merry for some of our neediest children and families. To participate in the Adopt-A-Family Program, please sign up using the form below! If you are unable to adopt a family this year, please visit our Adopt-A-Family Registry for suggested items that we will deliver to a child in our program. Alternatively, you can donate directly to the Adopt-A-Family Program by visiting our donations page.
Once you register, you will receive a list of the individual(s) you have adopted for the holiday season including information about the individual’s needs and wishes. This list will be sent after October 15, 2018, and you will be provided a detailed list of items that would be appreciated. These items are suggestions and should not be viewed as a shopping list. Your gift giving is guided by your family situation. Wrapped gifts can be delivered in Rhinebeck, NY or the Bronx in early December. The information you receive with your match will specify the dates and locations.
Please do not use this form to enroll in the program to receive gifts.
For more information on enrolling as a recipient please contact the Astor Services for Children & Families Program you or your child attends.
