Give back to your community and make the holidays special for a child in need through CAC's Holiday Adopt-a-Family Program! During November and December, you can make a difference by selecting a family on CAC's online portal, shopping for gifts for the kids, and delivering them to CAC for distribution. More than 1400 children need your help this holiday season; learn more and 'adopt' a family at Companies and coworker groups that wish to adopt several families can reach out directly to CAC at to be paired with families.

In 2021, generous donors made holiday gift wishes come true for 1,490 local children through CAC's Adopt-a-Family program! Individuals, businesses, and congregations adopted 580 families and provided gifts from the children's wish lists.  CAC also provided more than 600 families with holiday food boxes, a program that was made possible by a grant from the Shumard Foundation which has supported CAC's holiday and youth programs for more than a dozen years!
