‘Adopt-a-family’ program underway for holiday season

Posted

SULLIVAN, ORANGE AND ULSTER COUNTIES — Catholic Charities of Orange, Sullivan and Ulster is opening its annual Adopt-a-Family program, now in its 12th year. Each year, the not-for-profit human service agency matches families referred by Catholic Charities’ case managers with donors who “adopt” them for the holidays. Last year, thousands of dollars in gifts were distributed to hundreds of children and families throughout the Catholic Charities service area.

Each autumn, Catholic Charities collects information such as children’s age, gender, clothing size, special interests and possible gift suggestions. For children age 12 and under, it is requested that the gift include an outfit (shirt and pants) and an age-appropriate toy.

The details are provided to donors who have generously volunteered to “adopt” a family for the holidays.

Those looking to adopt a family should contact Michael Peters at 845/562-4733 or by emailing michael.peters@cccsos.org. Gifts should be delivered to Catholic Charities for distribution to families no later than Friday, December 13.
