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

AAF Omron 2022

Thank you for sharing so many wonderful physical gifts with KYC last year!

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.
