Event Details

Our Adopt a Family program is a beloved tradition at Friendly Center that allows ‘adopters’ in the community to purchase specifically requested items for a few select families that have participated in our case management program over the past year. These families are of various sizes with varying needs. Adopters receive a wish list from their adopted family and purchase items that fit their unique requests. The drop-off dates of the items occurs the week prior to Christmas.

Adopter Process:

Adopter lets us know what size family they would like to adopt

Wishlist of a family is sent back to adopter, containing a description of the family with their sizes, likes, and needs

Adopter purchases items for everyone in the family, including household needs listed

Adopter drops-off wrapped gifts

Adopter provides grocery store gift card of $50-$100 (depending on size of family)

Adopter receives a card and photo of the family in the mail

Three drop-off locations:

  • Orange Office – 147 W Rose Ave, Orange, CA 92867
  • Placentia Office – 900 S Melrose St, Placentia, CA 92870
