Each year, KYC hosts an Adopt A Family drive to connect hundreds of the people we serve with extra holiday cheer.
Many of our nominees are community members who are facing a truly challenging time during the holiday season. When parents are scrambling to afford a small gift for their children; when isolated older adults are longing to build connection to our community; when clients are struggling to obtain the basic care items they need to focus on their well-being; these are the moments that your kindness and gifts replace with relief, gratitude, and a sense of belonging.
Thanks to our incredible supporters, we were able to provide 800 gifts to local individuals and families, making this again, 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.
