Adopt a family for the holidays

Desert Mission - Adopt a Family for the Holidays

Desert Mission continues its tradition of supporting the local community through its annual Adopt-a-Family program. You can help make a family’s holidays brighter by contributing a holiday meal and gifts for the children and the household.

Adopters have the option of delivering the gifts directly to the family, or dropping off the items to the Desert Mission Food Bank, 9229 N. Fourth St., for delivery.

"This program is an outstanding way for individuals, families, offices, or organizations to make a difference with a local family," said Lola Ortiz, program engagement manager with Desert Mission.
