Adopt Our Families

Each year during the holiday season, generous members of our community purchase gifts for families in need that we serve. A “family” may be a single person, a senior or a parent/guardian and children.

Donors can determine what size family they would like to help.

If you would like to be involved with “Adopt Our Families” this holiday season or would like more information, please contact Grace Fritz at (309)691-0551 or gfritz@centerforpreventionofabuse.org no later than Monday, November 7.
