CHRISTMAS ADOPTION 2009

 

 

Would you like to be a Samaritan Center Santa?  We have many families with children 12 years of age or younger that need adopting for Christmas.  In the past, many of the parents even needed coaxing to get them to share what they would like because they wanted their childrenís needs and wants taken care of first.  As you know, adopting a family is more than rewarding.

With the help and generosity from people like you, Samaritan Centerís Christmas Adoption program has been extremely successful in helping to provide a joyous Christmas for many families.  In 2008, 37 seniors and 592 families were adopted.  With your help, we will again ensure a wonderful Christmas for these children and their families.   

The process is all very simple.  We will be signing families and seniors up throughout the month of October.  All you need to do is fill out the Adoption Commitment Form and stick it in the mail right away or fax it back to us.  We will then contact you with information about the family (or families if you are adopting more than one) or senior.  On the form, you need to indicate if you plan to deliver the gifts, food, etc., or if the family should pick them up.  Once you receive the familyís information, you are free to communicate with them as needed.
