Adopt an Individual or Family this Holiday Season
Thank you for your support of Kenneth Young Center’s Adopt A Family Program! We are grateful for the incredible team at Omron, and all you do to build stronger, healthier communities.
Each year, hundreds of clients and families are nominated for deeply needed gifts for the holidays through this program – we couldn’t bring this holiday cheer to our families without you.
Three Ways to Participate
There are many ways that you can make the holidays brighter. Start by selecting a person from the sign up sheet here. Add your name to the “Adopted By” field so that other team members know which wish lists are claimed and which are available. You may choose to shop for your wish list in the way that works best for you. Kenneth Young Center kindly requests that gifts total $30-$50 per adoptee, and that gifts be returned by December 7th.
Shop for a Physical Gift
If you like to shop for the physical gift items that your adoptee needs most, this option is for you! Whether you shop in person at a local store, or if you choose to shop for items online and ship them to Omron’s Hoffman Estates office, you are welcome to shop for the physical gift items that you’d like to share with your adoptee.
If you choose to wrap your gift, please use gift bags (no wrapping paper please). Gift bags are appreciated, though not required. Please return your gift with the “KYC Code” attached to the gift so that we can ensure it gets back to the right person.
Shop the Amazon Wish List
If you prefer to online shop for gifts, you can check out this Amazon Wish List to find many commonly requested items. When you shop from this list, you will see an option to ship these gifts directly to Omron’s Hoffman Estates office. This option makes shopping and returning much-needed and greatly appreciated gifts a breeze.
Upon checkout, please be sure to include a gift message with each item that designates the “KYC Code” of the person for whom you are shopping. This will ensure that your gift is able to be shared with the right gift recipient.
Make a Virtual Gift
Your virtual gift provides an opportunity for clients to purchase the personalized items they need most. When you make your gift using the form below, KYC will purchase a gift card to send to the gift recipient on your behalf. Please include the “KYC Code” for the person you’ve chosen to support in the Comments section below, and KYC will be sure to get your gift to the right person.
Virtual Gift Bonus: Your virtual gift can make double the impact! When you donate through the form below, check your email for an acknowledgement of your gift. You can submit this email as proof of your cash donation to KYC, and the Omron Foundation will generously match your gift to provide additional support to the community members KYC serves. For questions about how to submit your gift to be matched, please contact Omron’s Community Outreach Team.
