At holiday times – Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah, Easter and Passover are the most common – many generous clubs, service organizations, businesses, families and individuals contact Child & Family Center Foundation to “adopt” a family to share gifts of toys, toiletries, food and more. This practice is a direct and heart-warming charity that not only helps the adopted family but which has a reciprocal value for the donors themselves, helping them to experience the true joy of giving. To find out more about adopting a family for the holidays, please contact Cheryl Jones in the Foundation office at 661-255-6847x3018 or
