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.
