ADOPT A FAMILY
For the past 31 years, the Neighbors 4 Neighbors’ Adopt A Family 4 the Holidays Program has been a cherished tradition in South Florida, marking the highlight of the season!
Neighbors 4 Neighbors collaborates with over 40 local non-profit partners to support the families enrolled in our program. Together, we create a one-of-a-kind holiday gift-giving experience.
What sets our program apart is the personal connection you get to establish with the family or families you choose to adopt. You have the opportunity to meet them in person and personally deliver the gifts!
By working alongside our non-profit partners, you can rest assured that your assistance will provide these families with a holiday experience they might not have otherwise. It’s a chance to bring joy not only to them but also to yourself.
Our collective impact is truly remarkable!
Here’s how it all works:
- REGISTER: Click the button above to Register to Adopt. Then, browse through family profiles to select one or more families to adopt 4 the Holidays. You can search for families by zip code, family size, non-profit agency, or family special needs.
- ADOPT: Once you select your family to ADOPT, the family’s caseworker will contact YOU and share the family’s gift list, as well as provide their contact information.
- GIFT: Then, YOU can purchase gifts for the chosen family and coordinate with them and their caseworker to deliver gifts! The uniqueness of the Adopt A Family Program is that you can meet the family you adopted in person!
Thanks to the incredible generosity of our community, last year we were able to bring joy to 702 families, comprising 2,668 individuals. We collectively donated $523,000 to families in need during the last holiday season!
We invite you to join us and connect with a family in need this Holiday Season!
We recognize that not everyone may have the means to personally adopt a family for the holidays. That’s why, through our Operation Elf Program, generously presented by Cemex, we collect monetary donations. These funds are then utilized to purchase gift cards, extending the holiday spirit to families unable to partake in our one-on-one adoption program.
In close collaboration with our partner agencies, we identify those families facing the greatest need. Together, we unite to ensure that these families experience the best Christmas possible. Every contribution, regardless of its size, makes a meaningful difference
Besides our Adopt A Family 4 the Holidays and Operation Elf Programs, we’re making it easy for you to spread joy this season by collecting brand-new, unwrapped toys at various locations across South Florida!
This year, we’ve teamed up with Graham Companies to uphold the tradition of the Toy Drive during the 38th Annual Main Street Festival of Lights. All the toys gathered during this event will go to Giving Gators, a local Miami Lakes charity.
We’ve also partnered with Ford to host toy collections at all their South Florida Ford Dealerships! We would like to invite YOU to join us in spreading holiday cheer by donating toys. These contributions will directly benefit children in need across South Florida. Check out the drop off locations below. Last day to donate toys is Dec. 13th.
Once we’ve collected the toys, we partner with All My Sons Moving & Storage to ensure these toys find their way to several local non-profit agencies.
