Adopt A Family
‘Adopt a Family’ for the holidays!
Give Support. Give Hope. Give Smiles.
Help make the season bright for a local family in need of some holiday cheer. Adopt a low-income family in your community and give the gift of hope this year. There is no greater gift than helping a family in need.
Adopt A Family provides families in-need with a holiday they cannot afford for themselves. Each year, CTD partners with local schools and other non-profit organizations to match low-income families with generous donors who “adopt” families by promising to purchase items from their adopted families’ wish lists. Last year, Capture the Dream, Inc. and donors supplied more than $40,000 worth of gifts to low income families in the Bay Area. Gifts ranged from clothes, hygiene products, appliances, linens, gift cards, and even brand new beds!
Thank you for joining us in making countless Christmas memories!
Ways to contribute
- Adopt a family. Due to an abundance of community support we no longer have any families remaining in our program that are in need of adoption. Thank you so much for your generosity! We hope that you’ll check back again next year to bring some holiday cheer to a family by committing to purchase items from a family in-need’s holiday wish list. To sponsor a family, register on our website and state the number and size of the family/families you would like to adopt. Once your application has been received, Capture the Dream will send you a confirmation email. You will receive your family’s/families’ wish list(s) within 5 days of successful online registration.
- Donate gift cards or funds. Gift cards can help to supplement the gifts provided by our generous Adopters, or be used by Capture the Dream to purchase gifts for any families not matched with an Adopter. Grocery gift cards are greatly appreciated to help with provisions for a holiday meal. Please send gift cards to:
