As our days grow shorter, many of us shift our thoughts to the joy of the holiday season.  Unfortunately, for those families in our community struggling to make ends meet, this can be a worrisome time. Many Santa Cruz County families struggle to meet their basic needs and may go without enough food and warm clothing, let alone toys or other holiday gifts.

With your help we can make the holiday brighter for families struggling with poverty, disabilities, abandonment, or economic strain. This year we will serve over 450 families, isolated seniors, and independent teens. All of our adoptees have been referred and screened by our 25 partner organizations to ensure that your gift is reaching those most in need.

You can choose to adopt, donate, or give a gift.
