The Boys & Girls Club of Vista invites the community to spread some Christmas Cheer to deserving Club families who could use a little help this holiday season through its Adopt-A-Family program.
Benefactors will receive a profile of their family along with the first names, ages clothing sizes, and “wishes” for each family member so they can provide the appropriate gifts. In addition to providing gifts for family members, sponsors include a grocery gift card for a holiday meal. Individuals, corporations or civic groups interested in “adopting” a family for the Holidays can request a sponsorship application from email@example.com, or by calling Ellen Clark at 760-724-6606 ext. 12.
“Our mission is to enable young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. A significant percentage of our kids’ families are considered low to very low income as these are the kids who need us the most” said Dani Witkowski, Board President, “It’s great to see the community support our kids by providing a memorable Christmas for them.”
