The holidays can be a painful time for struggling families who are not able to provide their children with holiday gifts or traditional holiday meals. In fact, it can be a heartbreaking season for many. That’s why we ask our community to join us every year in brightening the lives of people in need through the Adopt a Family program.


In 2016, in collaboration with local partners, we provided over 700 individuals with holiday gifts, gift cards and holiday meals.

Adopt a Family is only possible through the generosity of people like you – people willing to open their hearts so that a family in need can enjoy a joyous holiday season.


For more information, contact or 949.435.3460.


Here’s how you can participate:


• Host a gift drive in your congregation, club, school or neighborhood

• Donate new toys, clothes and other children’s items (only new, unwrapped items, please)

• Make a charitable donation so that we can brighten more lives
