Adopt-a-Family and Help Those in Need this Holiday

 Our annual Adopt-a-Family campaign is in full swing, and we're looking for generous donors to help us provide holiday cheer for those who need it most.

HOW IT WORKS: Family Centers' staff have identified more than 120 families in need, and compiled their "wish lists" of clothing, toys, home goods and other necessities.

Interested donors will be matched with an income-constrained family living right here in our community. All donors will receive a general description outlining the family's need, the ages of children, clothing sizes and gift requests.

All gifts should be wrapped and dropped off at our 40 Arch Street offices in Greenwich by Dec. 16.
