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!

Option 1:
Sign up to shop for a family’s wish list

  • Submit our online 2023 Donor Application by September 15 to fill out information about yourself (or your organization). We will use this information to match you with a family in need.
  • 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.
