Adopt-a-Family

This holiday season, give back by bringing light into someone’s home.

While most of us spend the holidays with friends and family, gathered inside warm homes, sharing laughter and gifts, many of our clients are facing a difficult stage in life.

Any Baby Can’s Adopt-a-Family event matches client families with people in our community who are able to provide a gift for each family member, ensuring that everyone can experience holiday cheer.

This year, we’re looking to match up 200 client families. Our families include first-time parents with few resources, families whose children are facing cancer or other chronic illnesses, and kids with auditory or visual impairments, disabilities, or developmental delays.

How to Get Involved

Sign up for Adopt-a-Family by November 5. You’ll be notified in mid- to late-November of which family you’ve been matched with so that you can purchase items off of their wish lists. Simply bring the wrapped gifts to Any Baby Can’s offices and we’ll get them to client families by mid-December.

We have client families both large and small that need gifts this holiday season! We’ll match you with a specific family depending on how much you’re able to give.

Tips for Giving

  • Enlist your family, coworkers and neighbors to pitch in for buying gifts or signing up to adopt a family!

  • Remember to include batteries for any items that require them.

  • Consider donating gift bags, wrapping paper and tape.

  • If you don’t have time to purchase gifts, consider donating to Any Baby Can so that we may purchase missing items.
