Adopt a Family
Chris Hall works for the Orange County Department of
Education and one of the sites she is the administrator for is called
Skyview School. Skyview is in the City of Orange and is the only
homeless school program in North Orange County. The students attend on a
daily basis like any other school, but when they finish school for the
day, they are transported to a homeless shelter where they and their
Skyview has an "Adopt a Family" program for Christmas. The members of
each family, of which there are 26 families, makes a wish list for
Christmas. The young kids usually want toys, the older kids often want
books, makeup, or other age-appropriate things, and the adults usually
want gift cards.
Skyview's Adopt a Family program tries to get groups/individuals
to commit to providing 2 items off the wish list of every person in a
particular family. These gifts are purchased and holiday wrapped. The
wrapped presents are given to the family, and on Christmas, they open
their gifts and celebrate the day. Keep in mind, this celebration takes
place in a homeless shelter.
Skyview has a family of 8 people that needs to be "adopted". Dean Hall
presented this program to the board at the board meeting.
Those at the board meeting were enthusiastic about the Skyview Adopt
a Family program, and especially enthusiastic about adopting this
family of 8. It was pretty much the consensus of those at the board
meeting that they would all prefer to donate money toward the purchase
of gifts for this family. With 2 gifts per person, 16 gifts would need
to be bought.
At the present time, please let Dean know who would like to participate and help buy gifts for this
family. He will know more soon about the demographics of this family and
the gifts on the wish list. If everyone wants to donate money, Chris and
Dean are willing to buy the gifts for these 8 people.
Chris and Dean are donating $50 toward the purchase of gifts for this
family. Please let them know if you are on board with this and how much
you are willing to donate (or even if you would prefer to buy a gift
once Dean know more about the family).
Thank you for considering this. And thank you in advance for supporting
a very worthwhile program and opportunity to give back to our community.
Dean needs your money received by
