Christmas is fast approaching, and many of people begin to think about what they are going to give to their friends, family, and the person whom they drew at the office Christmas exchange! But many people embrace the spirit of Christmas and give to those who are not as fortunate as themselves. We here at Bright Horizons have seen this spirit of giving enliven so many families through our Adopt-A-Family Program.
This program is a great way for us and the community to give families a very merry and magical holiday. Families we work with are given the opportunity to apply for this program by making a gift wish list. Then, individuals and businesses in the community can sign up to adopt a family to help make their wishes come true!
If you are interested in adopting a family or being involved with this program, there are several ways to do so. You can call to adopt, and you can choose if you want a small family, large family, or several families. Or you can go to the following locations where a Christmas tree will display individual gifts for you to choose from: Shamrock Nursery in O’Neill and the Village Inn in Norfolk. You could even choose to volunteer your time to help wrap gifts during December to help get them to families in time for Christmas!
To sign up or to learn more about this program, please call either of our locations to speak with an advocate.
