Spread The Word


The holiday season proves especially difficult for the families we serve, as parents who struggle to provide their family's basic needs are forced to explain to their child why they cannot afford to buy that special toy. Each December, generous donors help to make the holidays a little brighter for local families in need by donating gifts as well as gas and grocery cards. In 2013, donors brought holiday cheer to over 650 families with 1700 children in Orange County.

In order to participate in this program, you must be able to deliver donations to our office in Irvine. We are unable to schedule pick ups.

Donations are accepted from the beginning of November through early December, so "wish" lists can be filled. Please deliver holiday gifts to Families Forward as soon as possible. We cannot guarantee that gifts received after December 15th will go out to families in time for the holidays. Please contact holidays@families-forward.org or call us at (949) 379-8149 for more information about this program.

Thank you for your support in 2014! The sign-up form for becoming a Adopt-a-Family donor will be available again in October of 2015.
