Adopt a Family for the Holidays


You help us serve with heart. Through the years, generous individuals, local businesses, and community partners have “adopted” families for the holidays, providing gifts and meals for children and their household. Please join us in making their holidays bright!

How to get involved

If you’d like to participate, helping a family is easy—either option below will help to support our adopted families and program. Please note that due to the popularity of this program, space is limited!


Our 2023 Donor Application is now closed. Thak you to all who signed up to adopt a family this year! 

  • Once you are matched with a family, you will be contacted by a Desert Mission staff member with information about your family and their “Wish List” to begin shopping.
  • You can drop off your gifts to the Desert Mission Food Bank Monday through Friday, December 4-15. You will receive specific details about drop-off closer to the event.


Though our application window has closed, there is still another way you can support our program! 

Financial contributions to Desert Mission will be used to purchase gifts and food for families in need. HonorHealth Desert Mission is a qualifying charitable organization should you wish to support our program.

Visit the link below, and under “Designation,” please select “Holiday Adopt-a-Family.”
