Gulf Coast Center for Nonviolence Adopt-a-Family program gearing up

The Gulf Coast Center for Nonviolence Adopt-a-Family Program is gearing up for this holiday season.

For over a decade, thousands of families have been granted donated Christmas gifts. The program helps individuals, large and small families, and people of all ages.

GCCFN pairs donors with sizable families depending on how much they are willing to donate. Donors are presented with a modest wish list of items and sizes to help when Christmas shopping.

Through the success of the program last year, 415 individuals were granted Christmas. GCCFN Communications Manager Rene Davis said, “These are people who have gone through something traumatic. Some of them are just beginning to get out on their own and certainly we want to help share Christmas and spread some joy and bring something really positive at this time of year to what could be a very difficult time in their lives. So, it’s always very up lifting whenever people in the community will step forward and help us do that.”
