Providing a Joyful Christmas to Our Neighbors in Need

Each year, the Adopt-a-Family program provides Christmas joy and hope to hundreds of families throughout Fairfield County. Families in need in Fairfield County can be referred by local Salvation Army facilities, by local agencies and schools, by friends or family members, or even self-referred by submitting a Christmas Cheer application.

NOTE: For the 2020 season, applications must be submitted in-person during an appointment - please call 740-687-1921 to schedule an appointment.

Families and seniors that apply for participate in the program are paired with kind-hearted sponsors who purchase and wrap gifts and drop them off at our distribution facility. From there, our volunteers will coordinate with the receiving family.

This is a great way to bring an extended family together to focus on giving back during the holidays. Recruit your siblings, cousins, friends or even coworkers to adopt a family and bring joy to those who need support this Christmas!
