Adopt A Family

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County (BGCMC) launched their annual Adopt-A-Family program the week October 31st. Each year during the holiday season, BGCMC chooses in-need Club members and their families to be a part of the Adopt-A-Family program. This year, over 100 families have been selected from the Seaside and Salinas Clubhouses as well as from extension sites.

Over the years, there has been overwhelming response from the community to participate in this program and bring holiday joy to families who need it most. BGCMC invites local individuals, families, and businesses in the community to participate by shopping to purchase the needed items for the families or by donating funds or gift cards to be used in purchasing gifts for the families.

Those interested in adopting a family are provided with a list of much needed clothing items for the children as well as a wish list of items to purchase, including books and toys. All gifts must be dropped off at the Seaside Clubhouse (1337 La Salle Avenue, Seaside, CA) by December 6th. Gifts are wrapped by volunteers and delivered to the families in time for the holidays. Supporters can also volunteer to help wrap presents. In 2015, over 100 volunteers wrapped nearly 4,000 presents that were given to more than 400 children for the holiday season.

For more information about Adopt-A-Family call 831-394-5171 and ask for the Adopt-A-Family Coordinator.
