ADOPT-A-FAMILY HOLIDAY GIVING PROGRAM

ADOPT-A-SENIOR HOLIDAY GIVING PROGRAM

Enrich your holiday experience by giving back this season!

 Since 1997, the South County Outreach Adopt-A-Family program has helped families during the holidays by providing food, toys and clothing in a compassionate and supportive manner. Your donation goes a long way in helping families have a brighter holiday season.

In 2016, the Adopt-A-Senior program was successfully launched. Most of our seniors are on fixed incomes and being remembered during the holidays with a gift and a holiday meal is greatly appreciated.

Adopting a family is a wonderful way to teach children how be charitable and to involve them in a community project. It is also a wonderful team building opportunity at the close of the corporate year.

South County Outreach pairs sponsors with families in need, while considering requests for specific family size, ages of children, and even city of residence. Once matched, sponsors shop for groceries that can be apart of a holiday meal, as well as age-appropriate gifts for the children. Finally, the sponsors meet the families, delivering the food and toys and fulfilling holiday wishes.

Families  are available for holiday adoption in the following south Orange County cities:


  • Aliso Viejo
  • Dana Point
  • Irvine
  • Laguna Beach
  • Laguna Hills
  • Laguna Niguel
  • Laguna Woods
  • Lake Forest
  • Mission Viejo
  • Rancho Santa Margarita
  • San Clemente
  • San Juan Capistrano

Your gift, large or small, can be the difference between a joyous or somber holiday for that family in need.

South County Outreach pairs sponsors with seniors in need as well. A specific city of residence can be requested. Suggestions for appropriate gifts are sent to the sponsor when matched.

South County Outreach makes it easy for you to extend your kindness and generosity to the families in our communities by helping families two ways:

  1. Adopt-A-Family for December holiday season.
  2. Adopt-A-Senior for December holiday season.
