Cel­e­brat­ing a Record-Set­ting Adopt A Fam­i­ly Season

Each year, KYC hosts an Adopt A Fam­i­ly dri­ve to con­nect hun­dreds of the peo­ple we serve with extra hol­i­day cheer.

Many folks nom­i­nat­ed to receive gifts are either fac­ing dif­fi­cult finan­cial times, are espe­cial­ly iso­lat­ed this hol­i­day sea­son, or could ben­e­fit from extra con­nec­tion to the community.

Thanks to our incred­i­ble sup­port­ers, we were able to pro­vide over 700 gifts to local indi­vid­u­als and fam­i­lies — mak­ing this our largest Adopt A Fam­i­ly sea­son yet. We are so grate­ful for all of the donors, vol­un­teers, staff mem­bers, and orga­ni­za­tions who helped make the hol­i­days so much brighter for the peo­ple we serve.
