Each year Wasilla Homeless-Committee hosts their Adopt A Family program for the holiday season. Families in need can apply for adoption. Businesses, church groups, and individuals can apply to adopt a family.
As applications are received, adopters and needy families are matched based on size o family each adopter prefers.
Wish lists are obtained from each family with names, ages, clothing sizes and special Christmas wishes. These lists are forwarded to the adopter.
Once all gifts are obtained, wrapped, and tagged, a WHC volunteer collects the gifts and delivers them to the family in time for Christmas Day.
Donations of monies are also accepted to enable us to purchase for families that were not matched.
Applications are open from November 1 - December 1. Families applying MUST reside in the Mat-Su Valley. Family members are limited to parents and children under the age of 18.
